Mix a little foolishness with your prudence: It's good to be silly at the right moment.
Way hay Round 9 and we are off to a great start! Hollyhock - So pleased you are with us agin.Denise ABC Team
I've heard hollyhock, but not alcea. So many different names for the same items!ROG, ABC Wednesday team
Hollyhocks were my favorite childhood flowers. Each year I vow to plant some but never get around to it. As a child I made dolls of them, with voluminous skirts (the blossom) and would sell them to neighbors door-to-door. Tolerant adults!
Nice .. Are they usually pinkish? Outside the church on the corner of B'way 79th St there's a plant that grows the biggest flowers and they look like that but they're pink-ish
I didn't know that they were also called alcea. Lovely flower by either name.LindaABC Wednesday Team
I've never seen a black hollyhock before - very striking:-)
so rare I could stare at it all day and think I will
Didn't know Hollyhock had another name.Very nice photo.
I have some hollyhocks that come up each year at the corner of the house. They are a lovely red. Thanks for the visit today.
I love hollyhocks and those dark almost black ones are my favorite. I have the pink as well as ones called black beauty (they're actually more of a dark purple) and the black beauty are my favorites.
