My wife and I planted some hollihock this year. Beautiful when in bloom but pretty depressing when not. Can I just cut down the stalks? They're still green but fading fast.

They do turn rather gray and nasty. I would trim them back once they are done.

Thanks sd. Storm blew them over on Saturday. :laughing:

Hollyhocks are biennial, which means they only bloom every second year. They are also prolific self-seeders, so ideally, over time, your hollyhock patch will always have some in bloom.
