An old cottage garden biennial plant. The flower stems grow from a rosette of leaves and can reach 200 cm in height. Cut back in winter. It is ideal for planting along walls and fences or towards the back of a flower border. Althea rosa typically germinates very sporadically and for this reason there is a generous amount of seed in the packet.
