    Product Information

    This beautiful, compact perennial is also known as a Miniature Hollyhock (All the beauty of hollyhocks without the issues of strong winds knocking them over). Sidalcea 'Little Princess' forms neat bundles of attractive, rounded and shallowly lobed flowers with glossy mid-green leaves at the base. Flower spikes, between 30-60cm high, carry big, silky, hollyhock-like, pale-pink blooms with fringed petals. And, impressively, these saucer-shaped flowers are produced all summer long.

    Sidalcea 'Little Princess', thrives in a loose, humus-rich, sandy garden soil. It will be best in a position in full sun, but is also happy grown in part-shade. It is perfect for gardens with a cottage-garden feel, or for modern garden schemes where it will compliment anything. Fully hardy perennial Sidalcea 'Little Princess' is related to the mallow and Lavatera family.

    Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant out.

    Top Tips

    Sidalcea can be slow to show signs of life in early spring, so you'll need a little more patience than normal before it returns to bud - don't worry, it's a late riser!

    Care Information

    • Grow in full sun in moist, well-drained soil. Alternatively, can be grown successfully in a pot.
    • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds.
    • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
    • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
    • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
    • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
    • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.
