Hollyhocks! A great way to add height! I remember watching my former neighbor's hollyhocks climbung higher and higher, filled with buds... excited to see how many buds were on the plant! One morning I saw the new homeowner in his driveway and complimented him with the beauty that was about to unfold. He laughed, because HE was just thinking that "That weed is WAY out of control, I've got to pull it up!" We were both happy when it bloomed! :D
In the pink...hollyhocks! If you are prone to any beetles (like the Japanese beetles) don't plant the lighter shades because the beetles will destroy the flowers in the spring; stick with the darker colors. You have to be patient though. Between germination and blooming can take around 2 years. They are worth it, tho.!
