Country flower in the city…

Hollyhocks (Alcea) have been a traditional staple of cottage gardens for generations. This Hollyhock plays a starring role in the garden of an apartment buildling in the busy city of Chicago, far away from any country garden. Perhaps the gardener is giving honor to a cottage garden of his past. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
