Tall and stately, Hollyhocks bring a romantic cottage-garden atmosphere to just about any garden setting. Wavy or fringed flowers that resemble hibiscus are surrounded by round, fuzzy green leaves. In shades of yellow, pink, red and white, the flowers bloom from the bottom to the top of rigid spikes. Use to add height to borders and beds, or plant in clumps near porches and doorways and along garden paths.
