Can anybody identify this plant?

I have spotted these plants in a garden and wondered if anybody knows what they are. They are around 7ft tall and come in various colours.

    very prone to "rust" so they don't often last for long
  • Thanks for your advice. Much appreciated.

    My Granny used to always grow hollyhocks alongside her giant sunflowers.  They were always lovely.  To be just 5' tall, she sure did love plants that grew taller than herself. :)

    That's a "blast from the past"! It was about the only thing my mother could grow back in the 60s :)
