Alcea rosea (Hollyhock)

An old fashioned garden favorite that can still be found blooming at many an abandoned home site. Because the flower spike is so tall you need to place it in the back of a border or in front
of a wall or fence so it doesn’t overwhelm smaller plants. Flowers may be white, pink, red, purple, orange or yellow and bloom
in June. Plant in full sun, any garden soil, with once-a-week watering. This plant is not bothered by rabbits, squirrels nor deer.
