Excellent plants

All of the Hollyhocks arrived in good shape. They are growing well and I look forward to enjoying them when they bloom.

Had some black spots on foliage. Watching and waiting for new growth. It will be a long wait for blooms next spring but I know it will be worth it.
GrowJoy: Let us know if they don't pop out of it.

Gorgeous Alcea!

First season this gorgeous plant's foliage took off & spread about 1 1/2' wide. The flowering stalk was about 15' high with tons of flowers. I've never seen anything so beautiful! It bloomed til end of October. It's April 17th and it already is spreading very nicely. I have 2 more that I can't wait to see they really add a nice flavor to the garden.
