Hollyhocks, anyone ?

I always love tall plants, and every year I look at Hollyhocks, but don't plant them, as I thought they were a deer magnet. I just did some quick Googling around, and hollyhocks are on many deer-resistant lists. But, as we all know, deer do not read those lists :-) so they sometimes do eat things we think they will not.

So again, I look for voices of experience - has anyone had luck growing hollyhocks in the Hudson Valley ? I would love to start some Hollyhock Alcea nigra this year and hope for the gorgeous virtually-black flowers next year !
