Wow!!! Thanks for all your help..it is so kind of you all to take the time...
and today my photo is the "Photo of the day"..I feel special!
The blooms are 1 12" (inch and a half) wide and the whole clump stands three feet tall..the flowers are in clusters of about five on a strong stalk. Each petal has an indented v. The foliage is much heavier than a cosmo..but similar looking.
Now that I have some names to go by I will look them up on Google images..
Thanks so much.
Cheers,
Carol

Well, I think Baa has it on the nose! I looked it up and Musk Mallow seems to be it!
This is so much fun!

You're lucky. I started Malva from seed last year and it did very well. this year there is no sign of it. Usually it reseeds all over the place. I wonder what happened. My white Malva came back but didn't reseed either. If I could only get my white violets not to reseed...

Starzz, if you get any seed, see if we can make a trade. I love the blooming on that plant.
