Alcea rosea

Alcea rosea (common hollyhock; syn. Althaea chinensis Wall., Althaea ficifolia Cav., Althaea rosea Cav.) is an ornamental plant in theMalvaceae family.

It was imported into Europe from southwestern China during, or possibly before, the 15th century.[1] William Turner, a herbalist of the time, gave it the name “holyoke” from which the English name derives.

    1. Baie dankie. Ek het hul al begin mis hier want mens sien hul nie juis nie. Die huis wat ek opgepas het het die reuse stingels met blomme gehad. Hul was dubbel so hoog as ek. Moes van bo van die eerste verdieping afneem om moi trosse te kry!
