I was just wondering in general - no, really!

Over the last couple of years I've got what might be termed a double
Hollyhock colour pale-cream (now multiplying) and I haven't seen this in the

I'm sure it exists already but it's that damned triffid wandering around my
garden that's trying to get all the attention.

Many thanks,
