Drab hollyhocks may be biennial hybrids

Q: Why is it that whatever kind of hollyhocks my friends and I buy, they always seem to end up being drab pink flowers after a few years? I know it has to do with pollinating, but why always drab pink? Are the hollyhocks you buy pollinated under controlled conditions?
