Hollyhocks are the essence of country life.

My mother and grandmother had beautiful Hollyhocks. There is a picture of my mother as a teenager standing beside a grouping of Hollyhocks such as this.


A very hardy perennial, surviving frigid zone 3 winters and sweltering zone 9 summers alike. In most gardens it will begin flowering in midsummer and continue through the season, ceasing only when the weather turns chilly in fall.

Finding a Good Planter.From toolboxes to wheelbarrows, the garden shed can yield plenty of unique possibilities for containers. Just make sure to provide adequate drainage. Love old wheelbarrow with beautiful plants.
