Alcea Ficifolia Yellow â€“ also known as Antwerp or Fig-leaved Hollyhock
This plant, which has deeply lobed fig-like leaves, produces more branching stems than the common hollyhock and is relatively rust resistant, so if you've failed with the normal one give this a try.
Cover with compost or grit 5mm deep. Keep moist in a cool, covered light spot outside. Grow on seedlings in 3â€ pots and plant out in good garden soil.
