From a distance, the dark color of The Watchman is as black as the moonless night sky, but on closer inspection you can see its rich, purplish burgundy cast. Seductive towers of flowers for bees and butterflies make an excellent backdrop for pink, red, yellow, or white flowers. Fairly drought tolerant but performs best with ample moisture. Hollyhock flowers are edible, but very bland; however, the large, colorful petals are lovely garnishing salads or desserts. (The flower’s central disk, while edible, can be bitter.)

    I was initially skeptical of such a good deal but I forgot about these leaves in my mailbox for TWO DAYS and they were still in amazing shape! the smallest leaf I received was a little dehydrated and he might not make it but I totally assume responsibility for its likely demise. I received 4 different and really beautifully patterned leaf cuttings.
