Could be those small gray sucking insects, look for them on the buds and along the stems.

Hollyhock weevils. Grrrr.

RE: hollyhock flowers

I just saw this post. Mine have done exactly the same thing this summer. All the ones by the house are stricken, but I have a few out by the barn and those are just fine. I was mystified. Weevils, huh? I'll have to check those buggers out.
