Hollyhocks

I have learned to love the unique Hollyhocks.

They are amazing, both fragile and strong. 

They grow to over 6' in height, with numerous blooms.

The bees love them as much or more than I do.

The double blooms on some Hollyhocks are exotic.

They seemed to evolve from the traditional ones.

I love them just as much, though.

And, so do my wonderfully sweet bees!

  7. Annie, these are stunning, especially the double blooms. I have never seen anything like them. The color is different as well. Do you know if hummingbirds like them? I continue to try to attract them. Sending lots of love, hugs and prayers with extra prayers for Maggie and Chloe Jo, Janet

  8. Holyhocks take Mom right back to when she was a little girl. Her grandfather had a million of them in the yard!!

    Sorry we are so late with this but thank you for your comforting words on the loss of our sweet Ellie. We are heartbroken.
