My bees did forage from my hollyhocks last year. But they waited til late in the summer before they found them. I m sure they are a good pollen source as holyhocks produce copious amounts of pollen, but I did see a few bees sticking their heads down in the bottom of the blossoms as well. I wondered if they were able to find some nectar down there.
