I am supposed to have this but the buds look very peach coloured on mine.

There are several colours in Hollyhock Old Barnyard Pimpernel, which includes a Red, Yellow, Pink and a nearly black one. Next time I sow some I will get the O B mix.

Love these and aren't they huge this year with all the rain, I have a self sown one just starting to open near a pink and white rose and it's practically the same colour pink !!!!!

Can't seem to grow these well here. Tried several times. In the garden they disappear and in pots they suffer badly from rust.....pity because I really love them. Yours are so pretty and healthy. Loving the colour too.

Yes its a good year for them Simbad. I have one that has rust very badly every year HB, but worth it as the pink flowers are lovely and lots of them.

Mine are still small! :) Nice to see what they will look like though :)

I love them Pix. My beautiful Hollyhock 'Creme De Cassis' (Double) after several years seems to have gone? I do hope not.

That sounds exciting Pansy, some of my favourite plants are those given to me in some form rather than bought.
