Sunny Hollyhocks

Thursday, August 6, 2009

Thought to have originated in the the region of Turkey, hollyhocks have found a home in gardens and on roadsides from there through Italy to Great Britain. They provide a wonderful backdrop for shorter flowers. Hardy, they like a variety of climates and come in colors ranging from white and delicate pinks and yellows to rich magentas and almost black purples.
