    Unhappy

    Does anyone know if hollyhocks are poisonous to humans? Can they cause reaction either by poison or allergen like severe rash and swelling?

    Is there a possibility there could be any ill effects from keeping this plant indoors?

    This is an outdoor plant which can survive several degrees of frost. Mind grow outside in a very exposed and windy Yorkshire garden and thrive! I would not recommend them indoors.
