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.
