Hi everyone!

I'm quite new to gardening, and decided that I would attempt to plant a variety of flowers. One of the ones I chose was hollyhock, which I planted from seed. I've had these plants spring up in that spot, and my mom and I are not sure if these are actually hollyhock because it's close by an area where we have morning glory and unwanted ivies pop up every year and the leaves are very similar to the morning glory leaves on our fence.

Because I'm used to morning glory, I thought I'd pull one up and see if it had the usual root system. However, it only made me more confused! The main stalk of the plant is pretty thick so I'm mostly sure this is hollyhock--but my mom is dubious because it doesn't look like the stalks of my sunflowers that I am also growing in a different spot.

Please let us know if this is hollyhock, or something else!! It would be very appreciated!!

Sorry, not a Hollyhock. It is a morning glory but might be a wild version (Bindweed)

Welcome! I'm sorry, it's not a hollyhock. The leaves aren't right. Sad
