New Hollyhocks in bloom. These seeds were planted in February just a few feet closer to our bungalow (on the North side) where the sun doesn't start to hit until early Summer. I can only garden on the East and North side of my bungalow since there is an alley on the West side and the South side faces a busy street with too many passersby. This Hollyhock is smaller then the last bunch which grew over 8 feet tall and are now full of seed pods. There should be plenty of Hollyhocks around next year.
