wow, that is one huge hollyhock then. I planted some but these came up about 2 feet from where they are supposed to be then...lol
That plant is almost 5' tall and has some huge leaves. I hope that is it as I always wanted to have a hollyhock out there and it seems to be a double :)

Hollyhocks can easily reach 5-8 feet, depending on variety :) Looks like it'll be beautifully full of blooms.

Flowox look for Triffid in the the video book on movies..Day of the Triffids... One of those goofy sci-fi movies from the 50's. Hence the "run for your life" warning.
