Forum home The potting shed

Plant identification pls

The best value I have had in my new garden this year unexpectedly came from a pack of seeds. I was after buying California poppies but could only find a seed mix. This contained Corn flower and Love in a Mist and this pink stunner.. but I don’t know what it is and have lost the seed packet! Would love to plant some more so I’d be grateful for comment.

    I think it's a Lavatera.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    I'd agree - a mallow of some kind, Malva. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Fantastic thanks… found it after googling Mallow Malva. It’s ‘Malope Trifida’ offered by Sarah Raven
    Thanks so much
  • Should have added last bit… ‘Vulcan’
