Color revealed

It's shell pink, a hollyhock again after many, many years. This seedling persisted and began shooting upward and forming single buds in the axils and a large cluster of them atop the stalk. The blossoms are single (I see no use for double hollyhocks). Nearby is a pot that contains sweet peas now blooming in five colors: an orange red, a blue red, a shell or blush pink, a periwinkle blue (great scent!), and those handsome bicolored purple ones (Cupani).
