Blieve it or not.
Year before last a friend gifted me 4 seedlings, they were all yellow, Last year I had enough of my own seed, there were a few rusty ones. this year I have thousands as borders and beds. To my surprise I have quite a feww red ones, white and mixed ones. I am segregating them in pots (red & white), a ply of genes.
They produce so much seed that I can provide to all member if desired.

@ Izhar and Sir Arif.....is it possible that yellow ones were hybrids and some of their offspring are reverting back to one of the original parent.

Hollyhocks are great and they seem to be blooming quite early for you. Mine still require 2 months.

All of your annuals looking beatiful and healthy.
Really nice shaped antirrhinum. Sir does it require some special care or techniques to shape or its self-shaping?
Regards
Rafique
