    You know I have tried and tried to grow hollyhocks, all unsuccessfully. I have bought plants & I have also tried growing them from seed. I think one problem is that they are very late to emerge from winter dormancy. I do have one hollyhock grown from seed last year. It is one foot tall! Not a very auspicious start, especially considering it is already July.
    I don't know what the secret is.

    Try these, they only grow to a height of 5 feet : ) but they will bloom all season and return with a ....well let's just say you will have plenty coming up for the next few years and more than enough to give away.

    Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina' (Dwarf Hollyhock)

    Thanks @toni . I will. I love the look of hollyhocks & have never grown them (successfully). Thanks.

    Also, Okra, Cotton and Hibiscus have very similar flowers since they are all in the Malvaceae (Mallows) family.

    @toni I do grow malva. I collected the seeds many years ago from our "farm" in western NY state. They are a wild flower but I love them. They pop up wherever they want (difficult to corale wildflowers I find). They are white or pink. Do you have they? BTW, how is your weather this year?
