I can’t get into the Secret Garden…the Hollyhocks are over 10 feet high.  So I stepped into my office, took the screen off the window…took some photos.

These sweet Hollyhocks are so hardy…they need little water and yet they produce and multiply like crazy.  They are heads above me, in the Secret Garden and it is totally secret because you can’t see any other plants/flowers.  These guys all all over it.  And I love that.


  1. Hollyhocks are really producing this year. I'm going to have to secretly introduce them to my back yard once again.

  2. Wow, look at your Hollyhocks. I am going to have to try them again next year. I didn't have very good luck a year ago so still don't have any. Yours are gorgeous!

  3. Beautiful. Love the color. I've never tried growing these. May just have to try them. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

  4. I think hollyhocks are about my favorite. Mine have all died,'s been just too hot here in PA this summer....but they were beautiful while they lasted. Karen....we have to talk before you plan your Alaska trip. I have suggestions for you...things you cannot miss!!


  5. Your hollyhocks are gorgeous!
