More Hollyhocks!

Such an old English Garden style plant.

This pink hollyhock has grown to a little more than 5 feet tall!

This hollyhock is called King of the Black, but you can see it's really a dark maroon. The early blooms are closer to black. In real life they both appear to be darker than in this picture. Very sexy!

This black hollyhock species is supposed to reach a near 6 feet! Unfortunately, mine feel prey to some deer. I sure hope those deer suffered a TERRIBLE tummy ache. Someone should tell them that I am growing garden flowers, NOT deer food!

I have more hollyhocks planted around the various gardens but some of their buds are just starting to show blooms.

Thank you for visiting. Please come back soon!
