When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Alcea Rosea

Don't worry, they will produce an abundance of leaves before the summer even begins. Mine always get munched but they're so vigorous it hardly matters 😊

It’s a very gentle, pale primrose yellow. Needless to say, it was supposed to be black 🙄 but that was years ago and I have forgiven it as it just keeps coming back 😉😊 @jeatacake

It was black at one time? 😲 That is quite a transgression!

😂😂 That would be fun! No, it was meant to be black when I bought it but must have been wrongly labelled @KariSamuel

God loves a trier, as they say! Frosts, sleet, heavy rain & winds have not put a stop to it #hollyhock
