What are the pros? Colors, rust resistance

What are the cons? They reseed thickly

Review:

I transplanted 4 starts of Indian Spring hollyhocks in the garden in May, groundhogs chewed them up, but they grew back. They bloomed by late July, first year from seed, and I ended up with a deep, almost burgundy red, a huge flowered magenta, a white one, and a pale pink one. I expected them to come back, but I left the stalks up and I think snow and ice got into the crown and froze the roots. Not to worry, tho, as they reseeded like crazy. I saw no rust on them last year, and see none so far this year even though they are growing cheek by jowl. From last year's 4 colors, I now have an array that goes from very dark red, to deep pink, to at least 3 different shades of rose pink, and a soft pink with a darker eye. Some of this generation have come out semi-double instead of single. Easy, rewarding, and none of last year's required staking. In contrast, the black hollyhocks blooming this year are leaning everywhere and the leaves are a mess.

What are the pros? bloomed first year, hardy

What are the cons? none

Review:

These were so gorgeous. Every seed I planted germinated, every stalk bloomed for months, and the color range was amazing. The flowers would start out as a bright pink, and then each day they would darken a little bit until they were very deep burgundy. As more flowers opened, it created a multi colored effect on the stalk, which reached as much as 6ft!

What are the pros? Bees seem to really love them!

What are the cons? Wish there were more colors!

Review:

This was the first time I've been successful with hollyhocks. I planted them as biennials. They're very beautiful, and the bees love them! I assumed there would be a little more color variation in the mix, but the only colors I got were the two pictured in the description. Seed is easy to save, definitely planting again!

What are the pros? takes heat, pretty foliage

What are the cons? takes a long time to bloom

Review:

These germinated well for me. One actually bloomed the first season however the rest are setting blooms this year. They performed quite well in the dry 100F temps of late spring/early summer as well as the hot, humid monsoon season.
