Delightful, dainty double and semi double flowers about 2.5 cm (1″) wide that resemble hollyhocks. Colours include pink, red, salmon and white. Growing to 60 cm (2′) in height, Clarkia makes an elegant statement in the garden and works nicely as a cut flower. For better flowering keep plants slightly crowded and go easy on fertilizing. Flowering will slow down during periods of excessively hot weather.
