Old Fashioned / Cottage Garden

I'm trying to create a cottage garden by adding Hollyhocks. I'm particularly interested in the old fashioned types, but I'm not sure which ones to include. Any suggestions welcome.

    Either buy plants or get seeds of single, NOT double blooming plants, avoid the black one as I think that is quite a recent type. I have been growing from seed for the first time this year, using Antwerp Mixed plus some other mixes. The plants are now about 10cm tall and will flower next year. I have no idea what colours they will be.

    I suggest that you also get Delphiniums for the height, Lupins if you have the space; they have a short flowering period and I don't have room for them. image
