Hi & welcome! No, they can not. They are biennials, which form a rosette of foliage the first year, then the tall blooms stalks the following year. Some individuals sometimes live longer, but they are biennials. They do not live long enough to lignify (become hard and woody.)

Hollyhocks are always mentioned in articles about biennials:
