Does anybody know what this is? It has obvious mallow flowers, but check out the foliage!

This is Malva moschata - Musk Mallow. The lower basal leaves are rounded-heart shaped and the upper leaves are pinnasect

You have these in the PDB. These are wonderful little malvas, and they self seed quite readily. They also come in pure white. Could send you some seeds if you like, Dave.
