Very tall Hollyhock

Zone LE16 9LR | Jim Kennedy added on July 23, 2019 | Answered

Hi, I understand that Hollyhock plants can grow to 70 or so inches tall. I have a white flowering Hollyhock that is approx 132 inches tall. Is this unusual.? Sorry I have no idea how one uploads a photo although I have one. Jim Kennedy

It is not unheard of. Sometimes this can be natural, but most of the time it happens from a lack of light. This can be noted by large gaps between flowers.

If the flower spike has little to no gap between flowers, then you may have a really healthy, tall specimen.
