I love hollyhocks, but I am really plagued by rust on them, just on the foliage, no matter what I do. On the other hand, you don't have to stake them, and they tolerate my really clay soil. So what I do is plant them with something in front  low enough and with enough color to hide what's going on with the hollyhock foliage . It's a good spot for a big clump of tall snapdragons, for example. My thing last year was I was on a mission to really try to eliminate weeding from the garden as well as bring pollinators to the garden and orchard. So  I went to the Home Depot one day and they had 5" pots of Monarda/ Bee Balm and I bought out three stores of them. Then everywhere there was even a gap,  Stuck the Monarda in. It may take a season or two, but that will fill in very quickly.

Have you tried Rose of Sharon, DoV? I had heavy clay soil and they tolerated it really well. They have very sturdy stalks, too. They remind me a lot of hollyhocks. I like the idea of the beabalm, that and dusty miller are some of my favorite filler plants.

I can fully attest that Rose of Sharon grows well in clay soils. One of the things to think about ahead of time is whether you want a tall column shape or if you want the bush to spread. If you want the column shape you need do nothing, but if you want it to spread you will need to trim the top each year - I basically just trimmed it even, and it will grow fuller instead of taller.

Have you tried pruning out 25-35% of the branches just above the crown in the late winter/early spring? This will encourage the lateral growth and keep the plant bushier rather than leggy which can be floppy and storm damaged here in NY..

Yes! I've done that, and it too does encourage the bush to be fuller.  Cutting the top helps prevent some storm damage too.
