Spring is here and the Hollyhocks are ready to bloom, take a look at my hollyhocks close up and you guessed it, another one from a smaller plant. Once again though you have to be patient. Hollyhocks are mostly a biennial flower. Plant one year to enjoy the next. I have some "old fashioned" ones started now that are supposed to keep coming back year after year, we sure hope so! I bought my Hollyhock from American Meadows.
