So, here’s the special YELLOW hollyhock grown from seeds from Plant World Seeds!!! It’s the first to bloom of dozens, and is much taller than all its fellow seedlings. I’m hoping it’s a freak, and that all the others will indeed be yellow. At least it’s a single, and rather pretty….if one likes pink!

I really prefer the pinks to yellows in my garden, but to each her own, eh?
I did the pink/white/purple years ago, but find the apricot/orange scheme more energizing and it goes with the orangey-gold brick of our house much better! Red makes me cringe though….
I just found Plant World Seeds when I was searching for some seeds! It sounds like you were satisfied with your purchase.
There’s always a rebel! Hope the rest turn out to be yellow!

The rabbits ate all my hollyhocks this year. ;-(
Interesting…my rabbits never bother hollyhocks, but love to bite off the zinnias….don’t eat them, just bite them off about 4″ from ground level. However, opossums eat the fleshy hollyhock roots in winter here, so I seldom have plants that overwinter.
