I found this plant in an abandoned yard that was destined to become a parking lot.I will have lots of seeds soon to trade but I need to know what I am trading. It is a popular plant in the northern gardens. It spreads by reseeding and comes back every year. Hollyhock or Malva family??? It grows about 4ft high.

Yes, it's from the Malva family. It's Malva moschata Rosea ~ Pink Musk mallow. Joy

Thanks for the question,and the answers. I have several, that I have been collecting seeds already, so that they do not go any further> I will have seeds also, this is one that I rescued from the compost site years ago. I could not get a full name attached until now.

Thanks so much Joy. I have wondered for years the name of this plant. Will have some seeds to post soon.

Took me a while to trace that one down myself. Relatives have been growing it for years as "Grandma's pink flowers". LOL

Just seeded some white ones and they're coming up nicely. :o) Malva moschata malva.
