Driving through our little town the other day I saw this Hollyhock growing out of the sidewalk up next to a mail box. It is lovely and has bright red flowers on it. This flower is what I would call an old fashioned one. I can picture them growing close to a little simple home along with a lilac bush and maybe a rose or two way back when this town was young. I bought some seeds today and will try my luck with Hollyhocks for next year.
