Rust on seedlings

The hollyhock seedlings which survived the atrocious weather we've had have rust on the leaves.   Should I dispose of them?  :'(

    Hollyhock get rust within days of germination here, they're very susceptible. I had to give up growing them.

    The fig leaved hollyhock , Alcea ficifolia is supposed to be rust resistant. Worth trying perhaps, as they are lovely plants to have.
