New Mexico's shortest hollyhock?

This spring and early summer has been so dry that a number of plants that I welcome as perennials - ok, a few plants, but they matter - just simply haven't appeared this year.  Chief among these are the irises - no sign of them having bloomed at all (although I wouldn't put it past the gophers to have chewed through their corms) and a tall hollyhock that has come up year after year (though last year, to be sure, it had been attacked by insects).  But in a corner of the yard - here's a small - a very small - brave hollyhock.  

By contrast, since the rains began, self-seeded morning glories are springing up like aggressively climbing plants in a fairy tale ...
