The Early Bird Gets the Worm

Hollyhocks are amazing plants.

My garden is filled with a lot of very tall flowers. I guess I like the feeling of being surrounded, or even better, being dwarfed by them.

Hollyhock begin growing in the early spring and by July they are easily over 5 feet in height. In August, their flowers turn into seed pods but the stalks continue to shoot up producing a new flower or two at the very tip. Sort of a "ha ha, look at me" to the other plants.

The early bird gets the worm but it's the last flowers that get all the glory.
