You've just reminded me, I've got a pack of hollyhock seeds somewhere in the shed which I never got round to planting. I think they're the double-petal type. Bit late for this year now. lol

Hmmmmn.... that's a lovely colour, but I wouldn't call it salmon! I love hollyhocks, I've got some lovely black ones just coming into bloom. (I've also got a nice bit of rust unfortunately.) lol

Thanks Sheilar, I have grown this from seed and its taken 2 years to get it to flower. I have sown a black one but so far its not flowered PL. I have an old variety with very bad rust and I have learnt to live with it as the flowers are lovely and prolific on it.

I've grown these before in the past and I think all types are prone to rust on the leaves. When you take a photo, just remember NOT to get the leaves in the pic.! lol

The new varieties the rust is much less Sheilar, the ones I have grown in the last 2 years hardly any at all. But the older ones its very bad.
