FOTD – July 13, Hollyhocks

I love joining in on Cee’s FOTD to see all the flowers others post. Such a happy challenge. Today I give you what I call an old southern flower. Other places had them I am sure but when I was growing up, the older gardeners always had them.

When I bought the plant, I thought I was getting the white but it seems that there were three plants in one pot and they are all different colors – white, pink and rose. And there petals seem different as the pink and rose are ruffled or curled where the white is straight and smooth. In the south these pare perennials so I will see if they can survive the winters here in Iowa.

As you enjoy the beauty of flowers, remember the beauty of kindness and share it where you can.
