Queeny Purple Alcea (Hollyhock)

I ordered this plant on Aug 6. It was received intact and very healthy with large leaves (quart size). I planted it near a large Mexican Purple Sage bush so that it would have some sun protection in the late afternoon. It is thriving and appears to already have a flower bud on it. Considering that I live near San Antonio and this is the warmest part of the summer, I am extremely pleased with how well this plant has progressed, even in this heat! GrowJoy has THE best shipping and customer service!
