Nah not Hollyhocks. Think Manny has it with White Butterbur but like this fellow I have never seen any flowers.

I have two which have seeded in my garden in North Vancouver BC, huge leaves and 24" stems.

Considered an invasive by some people.

Expertise

I can answer questions about plant identification, plant care, plant pest management, landscaping, and general gardening questions. Please post a picture of the plant you wish to identify, if possible. If you say something like, "I've got this plant and it's green with long leaves and white flowers" and do not include a picture, chances are I won't be able to help you. I may not be able to help with plants that are not grown in the Southeast/ Eastern US, but you're welcome to try me.
