Welcome Flowers...



Guess what is coming up in my garden?

Hollyhocks!



I planted the hollyhock seeds right next to my vegetable garden.

Right now, they are towering over 12 ft. tall.


To be honest, I didn't know what color my hollyhocks would be.

They come in many different colors, but I must admit that pink is my favorite.

Giving seeds to other gardeners is such a wonderful gift! I had received these seeds from a friend in Colorado.

I will collect the seeds after the flowers dry and give some away to friends and of course, plant more in my own garden.

Do you love hollyhocks?
What are your favorite colors?

I was graciously invited by Tootsie to "Flaunt My Flowers"

Please visit her blog - wait til you see how much she has growing in her greenhouse!

Do you think it is too late to plant some in Tucson? I was also given seeds and didn't know when to plant them.

Hello,

Hollyhocks should be planted in the fall and they will bloom the next spring :-)

I haven't grown Hollyhocks since I lived in England. I'm quite impressed you can grow them there, and they look wonderful!

They are fabulous. 12 feet tall? How amazing. Unfortunately they don't grow here in my corner of the world, so thanks for sharing your photos.

I do love hollyhocks, but I've had to give up on them! Every time I try them, they are covered with "rust", so I give up. Phooey! I love them!
