|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
A tall perennial that can grow up to 80 inches tall. Flowers can be pink or white and are found in open meadows or forested slopes.
Hollyhock can be found in sunny or shady areas. After a wildfire goes through an area the Hollyhock flowers profusely. Seeds from the plant may remain dormant for more than a century.
Animals such as Elk, deer and livestock love to eat this plant.
I've been searching for this plant for many years and finally came across it in Waterton Lakes National Park, a UNISCO World Heritage Site last summer.

I love your Wild Hollyhocks, they are so beautiful. I have always liked this particular species of flowering plant. They seem to grow in almost any type of soil and attract a variety of insects.
This particular plant has gorgeous pink blooms with very pretty green star shaped centers. Super sharp focus while displaying excellent detail. Exposure is perfect and you obtained plenty of DOF.
Hi Janice. Beautiful capture of the Hollyhock. Thank you for the notes as well.
Sharp, well exposed and great lighting.
