Hollyhock Stars

This year, the hollyhocks in our garden have grown taller than I’ve ever seen them before. They are various shades of pale and dark pink, red, and white. I’d never noticed how the buds have five-pointed stars that translate to the centre of the open flower before. They are so beautiful.

  1. I wonder if the performance of plants this year is linked in some way to the bad winter? I’ve got quite a few that look like they are flowering better this year than ever before.

    Hollyhocks are very traditional.

  2. They are a lovely reminder of cool, green English gardens. Just finished watering their warmer weather cousins, the hibiscuses. Fingers crossed for rain.
