A magnificent source of hard-to-find blue as well as every shade of purple from mauve to deep violet, ‘Mystic Merlin’ is an ever-changing tapestry of rich, cool color for months on end! You will love its easy-grow, no-care habit, and its blossoms will fill your garden and vases with brilliant color!
The blooms are 2 inches across, many lightly striped with a darker shade. They may remind you of old-fashioned single Hollyhocks, but instead of growing up a stalk, they arise all over a very dense, bushy, attractive shrub 4 to 5 feet tall and about 2 feet wide.
Ideal for the back of the border yet handsome enough to stand alone as a specimen, this plant also makes a fine hedge or foundation planting. Long-blooming and long-lived, it is a hardworking performer you will love! ‘Mystic Merlin’ grows readily in full sun to light shade and nearly any type of soil, and is easy to start from seed. Pkt is 25 seeds.
