I was really pleased with these three Hollyhocks.
I sowed them from seed from our previous rental cottage. The Hollyhocks which were there were all yellow. These came out to be a different range of yellows and reds. All very striking and decent plants.
They did all suffer from Hollyhock Rust, which did set them back a bit and make them look a bit ill. But the flower spikes were wonderful all summer.
I will try to keep them going over the winter, but I will also sow some seed from them and see what comes out next time.
