MEGS reply:

p.k. don't fret. From what I was told by a woman who was growing Hollyhocks like crazy (and I got seeds from her..) she said that they took 2 years to flower. The first year, they grow thier green.. the 2nd year, they flower. Prolific reseeder. The wind blew seeds everywhere, she even ended up with Hollyhocks out in the backyard, where she didn't plant any. LOL.

I did a search, and found this page-
Hortiscope, questions on hollyhocks.
Bill may have more info available as well, but I didn't find it.

Wondering if your Hollyhocks bloomed this year. I live in East Texas and I planted my seeds in '04. This year is the first year for blooms and they are looking great. I intend to plant a big bead of flowers with Hollyhocks, poppies, and etc for show. I saw a bed of flowers along side the curb on one of our main thoroughfares about 4x20 and they were just gorgeous. All tall flowers! It was quite eye-catching!!!
