Maybe too much nitrogen fertilizer? That can often grow more leaf growth than bud, flower growth.

Welcome to NGA, @Steve1949 !

It would help if we knew where you are located (you can add that info in your "profile," so it shows on the right-hand side of your posts). Most hollyhocks are biennials, so they will flower the 2nd year; maybe it just isn't time yet for yours to send up the flower stalk?
