Average Rating: Not Rated

 The hollyhocks comprise about 60 species of flowering plants in the genus Alcea in the mallow family Malvaceae, native to southwest and central Asia. They are biennial or short-lived perennial plants growing to 3.5 m tall, with broad, rounded, palmately lobed leaves and numerous flowers, pink or yellow in the wild species, on the erect central stem.

The flower was incorporated into the official seal of the Tokugawa Shogunate in Japan, and through this influence has maintained importance in modern Japanese culture. For example, it has become the name and symbol of a professional soccer club located in a city formerly led by the Tokugawa family. In addition, in the Japanese graphic novels Lone Wolf and Cub the seal is worn by Ogami Itto, the protagonist of the series, whilst he is in service to the shogun.
