I think it's called Hollihocks (sp?) Im not finding it here anywhere. Is this the same plant that one gets Hops from?

Welcome! Here is the link to the general Hollyhock entry in the database:
Hollyhock (Alcea rosea)
Hops come from another plant entirely:
Hops (Humulus lupulus)

Yours might also be a different species of Hollyhock. I notice that the leaves on yours are more deeply lobed than the ones I grow here. There is also this entry, although you can't see the leaves too well:
Hollyhock (Alcea rugosa)

Welcome Ada. If you let your hollyhock go to seed, they will likely reseed themselves for you. We always had them growing wild in the alleys of Seattle when I was growing up.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

They will also take over any area where you really don't want them! Trust me on this! Hilarious!

This is one of the few plants that I have no success with. I have no idea why. I have planted seed by the hands full and only raised 4 plants that lasted two years. Torn them out and threw them in the back pit and they grow every year. Go figure.

I know what you mean, Dave! I can't keep the darn things out of the areas I DON'T want them, and can't get them to grow where I DO want them. Kind of like poppies! Hilarious!
