Tall flowers

Post by Shazia Khurram » November 7th, 2015, 9:50 am

Hi! Hope everyone is happily busy sowing and planting this season. Please can you recommend some tall flowering plants that grow well in Isb/Rwp area? Do hollyhocks and foxgloves give good results here?
Also, can anyone identify the flowers below.
