what is this??

I know that this is the veggie board but I seem to get more info here. Does anybody know what this is on my hollyhock leaves and how to prevent it from spreading to the rest

Also, hubby brought these home from work and I want to know what they are so I can find where the best places for them to go.

I think this is a bush but no clue, it's so small right now

I did a quick search on the Googles, and it appears that you may have a hollyhock disease known as Hollyhock Rust. No idea what causes it or what cures it. Here's a link: [url]https://www.bumblebeeblog.com/?s=marigolds[/url]

Just search for Rust or Hollyhock within the page and it'll pop up.

Your unknown flower is a Pelargonium - most people call these Geraniums (which isn't quite right, but there you go.) Try rubbing a leaf and sniffing it - some cultivars have pleasant fragrant foliage.

ok thank you. I'm going to go ahead and remove this one since I don't like it's location anyways, there are lots of small ones growing around it that I am transplanting to other locations so hopefully they won't get it also. This is a 2 year old plant going on it's 3rd year, we don't even know how it got here.

Yup, flower is a geranium and I'm thinking the shrub is Rose of Sharon.

. . . or, a high-bush cranberry?

But, I'm terrible about id'ing shrubs.
