Hollyhock truly is an old garden favorite, with a long blooming season. Usually considered a short-lived perennial in Zones 3-8, but may live for several years if stalks are cut off at their bases after the flowers fade. Makes an excellent screening plant to hide unsightly places. Check nurseries such as Burpee for seeds.
I remember spending hours making these. Can not find these flowers anymore. Have not seen one in years.
Used to make these out of Holly Hocks…just not that fancy!!
When I was a long little girl eighty some years ago I made dolls out of flowers. These look like holly hocks. Fun.
I made these as a child. Hollyhocks, a truly old time flower! Would like to see them more often! The black ones were my favorite! They made fantastic make believe witches!
Looks like, I know how to make the fairy like flower arrangement: Turn the fully opened flower upside down.to make the waist-down part . then get one that is halfway between fully opened and a bud to create the head to the waist part of the lady flower figure.But what type of flower is it? Wow some plants have weird ways of mimicking humans/animals.. . . and of course vice versa.
We use to play bride with these flowers when we were little girls. The White hollyhocks were always the bride and the pink ones were the maids of honor !
Wow, haven’t seen these in many a moon. Used to make them out of Holly hocks at my G’mother’s house:)
My Grandma made these for me out of Rose of Sharon flowers when I was a child…….memories!
We missing out so much with many old fashioned annuals and bi-annuals no longer available at Nurseries.Climate change, times changing😓😟.

I made these all the time when I was little…some of the dolls had short hair, as I cut the top and gave them a new “do”. loved them
Many moons ago I remember making them from the Hollyhocks that grow by the side of our barn in Michigan, and floating them in the birdbath. Was just telling a friend about it last week. 💖 Childhood memories!!
My grandmother showed us how to make these hollyhock ladies
I used to make these when I was a little girl from Holly Hocks. I’d use the bottom of square egg cartons as a float and set the girls on them and decorate the carton w/other flowers and have a parade. Soooo fun and pretty.
I made lots of these out of Rose of Sharon flowers when I was growing up.
One of my fondest memories as a little girl,was walking down a back lane on a hot sunny day with hollyhocks of all colors growing on either side!
Oh my ! Be still my heart! Someone, when I was young taught me to make these Hollyhawk ladies! Maybe my dear Gram because she did have lots of these flowers in many colors. Oh! the ladies were so glorious all dressed up for the dance!
Looks like a baby girl groot.
We used to make these when zi was a kid.

Love Love hollyhock dolls. Played with them as a child. Many fancy balls and parties. Taught my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to make them
I used to make these out of the hollyhocks in our yard. I made a pretend ball out of several and had a grand party in the roots of the huge shade tree in the back yard. Complete with music, I always sang along as they danced. Memories!
As children, we used to peel the petals apart and they’d stick all day as earrings! We got our rhizomes from Home Depot. Get the doubles! It’s the 2nd year and they are 9 feet tall!
I remember making these as a child they are hard to get started you have to plant in sunny area & leave them alone. I love them different colors even black
We did this when we were kids. Made weddings with different colors. So much fun.
Always made hollyhock dolls at my grandmas.
