Hollyhocks are short-lived perennials or biennials that frequently reseed establishing colonies in the garden. They provide a sense of Old World charm with their tall spires sometimes requiring staking and heart-shaped leaves.  They are sometimes referred to as Althaea in catalogs.  Direct sow 1/4-1/2 inch deep in fall or start indoors for transplanting in the spring.
