Hollyhock Blooming

Anonymous added on August 15, 2017 | Answered

We have had two hollyhock plants in our warm Hawaii garden for over a year. They have an abundant output of stems with leaves, but have never bloomed. I fertilize them every few weeks with a "bloom fertilizer." Will they ever bloom?
