SOLVED: Please name this plant

Woodsville, NH(Zone 4a)

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.

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.
Janet, sounds like you will have plenty of seeds :)

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.
