Pretty In Pink

I am not sure if there are different varieties of Hollyhocks but I really like this one. It looks like the petals are made of tissue paper.

You're right . . . petals look like tissue.
Beautiful, though.

It is beautiful; I thought of crepe paper, but I like your comparison to tissue paper much better, The color is very clear and vivid!!
