Outhouse gets its name because it used to be planted around outhouses, both to mask smell and add a pretty visual barrier. Perfect background plant for borders. Full sun. Summer blooming. Biennial.

Site Selection

Hollyhock is a biennial that prefers full sun and will tolerate most soils if well-drained. Plant in an area sheltered from the wind.


Direct sow outdoors in spring once the danger of frost has passed. Seed can also be started indoors 4-5 weeks before the last frost and transplanted outdoors after the last frost date. Sow seeds 3-6" apart on the soil surface and press lightly to settle. Seeds will sprout in 14-21 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 12-24" apart.

For best results, water during long dry periods, but avoid wetting the foliage to prevent diseases.
