Plant id

Morning all can anyone id this plant ? It's flowered all winter and I'd love add some more but it was a freebie from a large garden clearance and I've no idea. The leaves look rather hibiscus like 


  • Can’t say for sure but it looks a bit mallow like
  • I think it is an Abutilon of some sort.

    Second vote here for mallow or Malva.

    Have to say it does look like a malva sylvertris, slightly disappointed cos the missus did say she thought it was a marshmallow plant so she was nearly there. 

    On another point then, should it still be flowering ? We have 2 and they haven't dropped a leaf and still have lovely blooms. I'd happily have a go at cuttings so I can grow them in my winter garden but are they likely to flower another year ? 

    Oh the conundrums of gardening 🤣
