Picture of the Day - Hollyhock
Hollyhocks are an old fashioned biennial flower, blooming in early summer.
You don't need a green thumb to have a beautiful garden full of this delicate flower but you do need a lot of space as they will spread.
They can grow as tall as 8 feet so they make great summer screens. They also attract butterflies. Hollyhocks are best at the back of the flower bed or planted by a fence.
