These are so pretty! I love hollyhocks. Mine have been in bud for weeks and weeks, and I'm beginning to wonder if they'll ever open!

Thanks DD anf P. One morning they will open for you Melchisedec, I find my dont all open at the same time.
My neighbour always has Foxglove as year after year they come back Pixi, but I only have them one season not good blooms either and then no sign of them ever again.

Same with me...Foxgloves popping up everywhere and then i have to remove them...Hollyhocks just sit in my soil and dont do anything?...:>)
