Tim Palmyra, VA (Zone 7a) Can anyone ID these for me.
#1: mallow of some kind?
#2: very sweet smelling, great cut flower

poppysue Westbrook, ME (Zone 5a) Here I'd say #1 is lavatera trimestris. And #2 is an herb - maybe myrrhis odorata (sweet cicily)... or it could be chervil or corriander.
Tim Palmyra, VA (Zone 7a) Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants, if #2 is an herb, I have been using it as cut flower! LOL
I'll post a list of all the seeds in the mixture.
meplant kelso, WA (Zone 8a) I agree with poppysue on #1, but I think #2 is queen anne's lace??..
dignbloom Greenfield, IN (Zone 5b) Could #2 be Bishop's Weed?
Tim Palmyra, VA (Zone 7a) My wife grandmother keep callting #2 queen anne's lace. #2 does not look anything like corriander I have.

poppysue Westbrook, ME (Zone 5a) Tim I don't think your #2 plant is on that list. It definitely in the Apiaceae (umbelliferae) family and your grandmother could very well be right with Queen Anne's Lace. It grows as a weed here and it may have just popped up in your soil. Look at the images below and see what you think -
This is ammi majus (Bishop's Weed) - an annual relative of Queen Anne's lace that is often grown for cutting
And Yes - your #1 flower is most likely the tree mallow
lantana (Zone 7a) I think amni majus--false Queen Anne's lace.
Tim Palmyra, VA (Zone 7a) #2 leaves and flowers are similar to ammi majus, so I guess it's Bishop's weed.
