I didn't expect this minature Hollyhock (Sidalcea malviflora) that I bought from Michigan Bulb Co. to do anything this year, but one of the six is actually blooming. This may be one of the smallest flowers I've ever seen, but at least it proves one of the six plants is doing ok. A couple of the others got fried.
It's so tiny, it's hard to give you a closer look. Here's a bit closer look.
