Sadly, Aunt Brownie has been sold as a full fledged pink, when in fact it is a smaller bloom with fewer petals.
Certainly this is not the fault of any gardeners, merely
a mixup in labeling somewhere along the line.

Positive Kell On Nov 3, 2006, Kell from Northern California, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

A tall 6 foot perennial hollyhock classified as a "figleaf" which makes it more rust resistant than other kinds of hollyhocks. It sends out many flowering stalks and puts on quite a PINK show!
