    Have you just planted these? image If so it's normally for them to wilt a bit sometimes. Looking green and healthy and the top leaves aren't droopy. All looking good  to me

    I think I would cut off the older droopy leaves. It would look better and be less for the plant to support

    Bottom leaf and left bottom with little bit of rust?  Or are my eyes deceiving me?

    Yes I agree that you shouldn't expect the hollyhock to look great if you have just replanted it - they take a week or two to pick up after being moved. However I also agree that it would be sensible to cut off the dropping leaves as the plant needs all it's energy to re-establish roots rather than supporting too may leaves. My hollyhocks have been planted outside for a month or more and are now only just starting into growth by producing a few more leaves. What colour will the flowers be Luke?

    I have enlarged it I don't think it's rust.
