Product information "Alcea rosea Spotlight Series 'Mars Magic'"

This hollyhock has the same characteristics as their double-bloomed sister varieties. The variety 'Mars Magic' has bright red-coloured, simple flowers. They bloom all summer long and well into autumn. Also, it forms candle-shaped inflorescences with bright red flowers above the dark green foliage. Alcea rosea grows from about 180 to 200 cm high. A sunny location with fresh and well-drained soil benefits its growth. The flowering period is extended by a pruning all the faded flowers.

Hollyhock rust (Siew Lee Vorley)

Is Alcea rosea Spotlight Series 'Mars Magic' immune to the rust, like Alcalthaea x suffrutescens 'Parkrondell'? I love hollyhocks but I'm put off growing them by the disease.
