My Colorful Hollyhock
I've heard others say that
hollyhocks are hard to grow.
I haven't had that problem.
Since the year I planted the first seeds
(and learned to be patient as the plants
are small and without flowers their first year)

in which they were planted.
I love the variety of colors
and the wonderful height they add
to my flower beds.
I have many hollyhock photos.

the hollyhocks from my garden last summer.
