Zionsville Hollyhocks

Oil on Canvas Board

For the last three years I have been driving over to Zionsville to paint hollyhocks that have been growing in one of the resident's yards. This time around a young woman came out of the house to see what I was doing. She had moved in during the Winter and said she was quite shocked when the flowers started growing. Does anyone ever plant these flowers as they are rare to see in modern gardens.
