Wild hollyhock – Iliamna rivularis
Full sun needed for this native perennial which grows into a shrub-like form with multiple branches then dies back to the ground each winter. In good conditions it can reach 6 ft., although 3 ft is more average. Showy, pink, rose-purple, or nearly white flowers are borne from upper leaf axils forming an erect, terminal raceme. Large leaves are broadly heart-shaped with triangular lobes. Flowers in mid-summer. Wild hollyhock is adapted to moist, loamy soils in mountain and subalpine zones, in the home garden it will need similar conditions. Loved by pollinators, but also highly preferred by herbivores.
