Double hollyhock

I just discovered these gorgeous double hollyhock flowers on the street, near a building.
The cream and red hollyhocks are so heavy that the hollyhock plant can't hold them and is laying on the ground. The flowers look like some huge carnation flowers.

I never seen such hollyhock flowers before, never noticed though they were probably always there.

Very pretty! I never have much luck with hollyhocks. My leaves always look like dead lace and the blooms are sparse.

Wow - beautiful blooms. Nothing at all like the single hollyhock I had this spring. As you say, they're very like carnations.

These are so gorgeous. I love carnations and have flowers that look similar to these, but they aren't carnations either.

Very beautiful find. I like both colors.

They are both very nice, but the color of the red one is very eye catching.

Do you love it when you come across something you have probably passed numerous times, but for some reason you finally 'see' it?

Those blooms look spectacular - I don't think I've even seen a double before.
