Hollyhock Alcea “indian Spring” color change

Zone SE minnesota | dnwhite added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

I purchased and planted this hollyhock weeks ago and it had pink flowers. The plant received an injury and I had to cut off the top 1/3 of the plant. It is now producing white flowers. What caused the color change and what can I do?

This is common for the Indian Spring Hollyhock.
The colors can vary from very pale pink though mediums to very pinky red.
The more sunlight they generally produce the darkest showiest colors.
You can stake your hollyhocks to help them stay upright in windy conditions.
