Default Hollyhocks - rust

Has anybody got a cure for hollyhock rust please? I grew the plants from seed in the hope that it wouldn't happen but I was wrong. I've been picking off the most affected leaves and putting them in the bin.

I know there are fungicides that will stop rust on roses. You might ask
at your local garden center if any of those fungicides will also work on
hollyhocks. Be careful. Not all rusts are the same.

I tried hollyhocks from seed. I even get two that bloomed. However,
the tortose that wanders in my garden walked up to each plant and kept
walking, knocking the plant down. She then turn around and started
eating the flowers and the tender tip of the shoot. She eliminated five
of my six thrift (sea pinks). So far, she ignores the foxglove and
columbine.

That gives a whole new meaning to the term "crash and grab". Maybe you
can install some crash pillars like they put in front of stores
like Best Buy and similar ;-)

And a big kudos for putting up with her!

nope, we used to have tons of them here but
one year the rust arrived and we never liked
how they grew after that. there are still
some around, but they are never spot free.

eventually perhaps a resistant mutation will
come along...

in the mean time i'm not into babying plants.
if they can't make it there are plenty of others
that will grow instead.

sprays may sort of work but i hate to use
them because it ends up just selecting even
worse strains.
