Last year I planted three hollyhocks that I purchased from a local garden center. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and they seemed to bloom profusely. However, some kind of insect eventually consumed all of the leaves. Ironically, none of the other flowers in my garden seemed to be affected. Also, none grew from seed the next year. I assume the plants self-seed themselves but not in my case. I even tried coating the leaves with a soapy solution to discourage any insects but to no avail. Is there a particular insect that infests Hollyhocks and how can I neutralize them?
