what is wrong with my hollyhocks?

Asked September 20, 2016, 10:14 AM EDT

I noticed my hollyhocks had some kind of orangy scale developing on the leaves about mid-summer. Whatever it is seems to have done them in early. What is it? Should I just pull them all up and start fresh next year? Can it be treated or prevented?

Thanks!
