I am confused with this species (rugosa). It is listed as yellow. Aren't the leaves of A. rugosa fiddle-shaped? Are there any other species with fiddle-shaped leaves? Thanks

A.rugosa does have yellow flowers - and typical hollyhock-like foliage. - Yours looks like it might be Alcea ficifolia with the lobed leaves.

I've got Alcea ficifolia and it looks pretty same, but your leaves are much bigger than mine.

I got this through a seed exchange. Alcea ficifolia seems more like it. Thanks!
