Default Rust on Hollyhocks

My new hollyhocks are affected with rust even though they were
supposed to be resistant, what can I do, please?

Effectively nothing. The severity of rust is dependent on the weather.
It may be better next year.

Ray regrets that he can only suggest some kind of anti-rust spray but thinks
it's probably too late now. I told him they were supposed to be resistant.
I won't tell you his response!

LOL Psst, whisper it then:-) Does he recommend any particular one
that will withstand a bit of wet?
