Albuquerque Hollyhocks

We were given several Hollyhock plants in the spring of 2004.  They bring us beauty and joy year after year in our Albuquerque backyard. They require very little attention and water.  We have given Hollyhock plants and seed to neighbors, friends and new home buyers that are ready to begin turning their dirt backyard into colorful retreats.  Hollyhocks the gift that keeps on giving!

These are amazing flowering plants. Once established they are drought tolerant. We even have them growing wild at places along our roads. It's amazing. Yet I planted one in my garden a few years ago, and I killed it. Go figure.

Hi John, the hollyhock photo is stunning-do they bloom all year in the Q?

John, this would be a wonderful plant this year, especially needing little water!     The colorful blooms are gorgeous!     I should get some for my back yard.

John, that is exactly the type of plant I need.  I didn't inherit the farming gene from my Dad's family.  Plants generally have a short shelf life around me!

Love flower photos and this is no exception. I love the dark blue sky background...

I especially love the sharing aspect of gardeners - to me that is part of the real joy of digging in the dirt..

The first summer I spent in my home these huge pink flowers just appeared one day.  They come back every year and I don't do a thing to them.  They grow on Long Island so they must be hardy.

Holyhocks, what an old fashioned flower and what a lovely photograph! You make me want to plant some in my yard - wonder if they would live in Florida!

John - There are certain flowers that take me back to my childhood.  Geraniums, Roses, Hydrangeas, and Hollyhocks.  I remember thinking they were so exceptionally tall.  I went several years without really seeing many of them, so I planted a few two summers ago.  I swear I've either gotten taller, or they have become shorter:-)   I love the rose red color on the one you have pictured!

John,

The Hollyhock is sure a feast for ones eyes. What a beauty! Doesn't it give you tremendous joy to know you had a hand in it's growth?

That color is vibrant and they look strong and healthy. You did a good job keeping it nurtured. This showy plant is gorgeous!!!

What a beautiful flower. I've not heard of them. Are they indigenous to your area? Very cool photo.

Hi All,  We really enjoy our various flowers and the Hollyhocks are no exception, they grow so tall they are a great addition to any flower garden.  Hollyhocks are very  hardy and often spring up more like a weed at times.  We always have seeds to share with anybody that wants some that includes of course Ginny....yes we can swap seeds...is the legal?  LOL  What is callirhoe anyway? 

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and sharing our Hollyhocks sometimes we all need a break from real estate.
