well could be Jac, the seeds you have are from the plant in the picture. i bought two roots of this plant from Woolies so it could have been labled wrongly, but it was labled as i have put here. and yes they are perennial... i have a look in the RHS myself and come back to you... and yes hollyhock doing very well thanks Jac, although still got a bit of rust problem going on with them :-( i have treated them and they have picked up :-)

... just had a look Jac, see what you mean, the pic in RHS guide - the flowers are not as rounded as mine and also the stemien is a different colour. so pehaps the variety was labled wrongly on the box? either that or the flowers in my picture are younger/more mature than the ones in the book? because the discription matches perfectly, i know they are S. malviflora, maybe the variety is different to what it is suposed to be, i don't know but you do get variation in colours and flower shape as they mature. will have to wait and see when they flower again won't we x
