Doesn't everyone love hollyhocks, so English country garden and so pretty with it. But what about the rust?
I have dispensed of hollyhocks in my garden because of this very reason, rather disappointing as I really do love them for their stature and colour. This year one has made an appearance, growing through a flagstone, quite short and this little beauty has no rust to speak of. Maybe I could just reintroduce some back into my garden next year? I may well do so, and see how they do?
My dad will be pleased. I don't think he quite understands my liking for plants which only possess the most perfect leaves!
