It looks like a pink thread leaf coreopsis to me...

Malva moschata - Musk Mallow

Newcastle, ON(Zone 5a)

Wow!!! Thanks for all your 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.

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!

That is so pretty, will have to look for seed next spring.

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.
