|Hollyhocks (Alcea rosea) are a biennial (some refer to them as a short-lived perennial) flowering plant, Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus) is a late blooming summer shrub. Rose of Sharon is also known as Shrub Althaea. Burpee is not currently offeringfuchsia, but if you need a source please feel free to post another question via the website.
