Sixteen years ago when we moved into this house, there were 4 or 5 hollyhock plants on our front courtyard. Now there are a lot more, and a great variety of colours. I consider these flowers to be among the best. The colours are just so strong, even when they are pastel. This year were have a variety of pinks, whites and yellows. Some of the reds are so dark they are almost black. And every year I go out and take photos of those I like the best. It would be nice if there was a market for the photos. I have to be quick, as Chef is often out there getting the best flowers for cake decoration.
I do not know where hollyhocks originated, but they sure do grow well here.
