can hollyhocks be trimmed

Can hollyhocks be trimmed - making them shorter perhaps? I planted two this year - which have now reached approximately 9 feet....just concerned they will fall over/break, etc. Plus, they are taller than the roof of my garage roof.

Hollyhocks can be staked to prevent falling over.

If you trim them while they are blooming you will likely prematurely end the blossoming time of the plants.
