Does anyone know what this is?  It was about 2-3ft tall.  I thought Malva but the flowers are too jagged around the edges I think.  Many thanks.

    Certainly something in the mallow family. I'll hazard a guess at Sidalcea, maybe the variety "Elsie Heugh",

    I agree … it’s Sidalcea … probably Elsie Heugh

    Think I've cracked it myself, Sidalcea (possibly 'Elsie Heugh').

    Looks like we all overlapped each other! Thanks Jenny and Dove.
