Photo - Hollyhock (Alcea sp.)

These biennials are dramatic summer bloomers.
The one in this photo is a double bloom. 
I like to buy mine in six packs in the early spring
and plant them in 15 gal pots behind my
container rose garden.  Hollyhocks usually are short
lived but they will reseed and come back every summer.
