What is this plant?
This lovely flower is growing in my neighbour's garden from a pack of wild flower mix that she sowed. She'd like to know what it is, so that she can sow it again next year. Can anybody help us to identify it for her?
It looks a bit like Cosmos.
Sheffield, Derbyshire border.
Looks like Mallow / lavatera to me.
Somewhere in my heart
There is a star that shines for you
Silver splits the blue
Love will see it through
Cosmos like leaves and lavatera like flower hmmmm.. A conundrum.
Thanks all! I've compared the plant to your suggestions, and come to the conclusion that it's a Musk Mallow.
My neighbour will be delighted. Thanks for all your help.
