Is this the biggest hollyhock currently in Warwickshire?

This hollyhock in the garden of Mick and Chris Ross in Napton on the Hill has grown to 13ft 8” tall.

It is believed that the record in Warwickshire previously is 15ft and tallest ever, in the Guinness Book of World Records, was 19ft 7”.

It’s still growing so if the winds don’t bring it down they are hoping it will at least overtake the Warwickshire title.
