I love hollyhocks... they remind me of mum. She always had them in her garden. My grandmother too.
They seem to have decided to inhabit my paths along with parsley and perpetual spinach! The man-from-Mars suggested he get out the weed eater to clear the paths! horror. I am pleased I made the main paths so wide.
I get a bit wet walking along after a rain, and I probably need to stake them for the wind, but love that I have so many.
