The Q&A Archives: hollyhocks

Question: My hollyhocks which are planted from seeds grow out the stems then die and repeat. Will they ever grow up and bloom.If so how long does it take?

Answer: Hollyhocks are considered biennials. That means from seed they will grow into a plant the first year but they won't flower until the second year. If you planted seeds last year, the plants should bloom for you this summer. If you planted the seeds this spring, the plans will grow stems and leaves but will not flower until next summer. Hope this clarifies things for you!
