      I don't know the species or variety, but I think it's in the Hollyhock family (Alcea) more likely.

      OK, on futher searching I think it may be what's called French Hollyhock, but it's really a Malva. Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina' specifically. Here some pics and links. Just a guess on my part though, I certainly could be wrong.

      Whatever it is, it sure is pretty!

      Mallow, French Hollyhock Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina'

      This Mallow is native to Europe but has long since naturalized throughout most of the United States extending into Canada. It is hardy from about zone 4 or 5 to zone 8 or 9 depending on the variety. The Zebrina variety sold below is hardy from zone 5-9. Malvas are short lived perennials or biennials, however, they reseed readily. Malva sylvestris also flowers profusely the first year so it may be treated as an annual in colder areas.


      Malva sylvestris prefers full sun but will tolerate part shade. It is very tolerant of a wide variety of soil types and pH as long as it has good drainage. This Mallow, often called Tall Mallow or French Hollyhock, is a shorter cousin of the Hollyhock and is considered to be easy to grow.

      Because this plant can be easy to grow and reseeds readily, keep in mind that if you do not want reseeding or find it to be too much, you may want to cut off the flower heads before they go to seed.

      Comes in many shades

      I have it. Have always known it as miniature hollyhock. My daughter found it about 20 years ago, growing in a sidewalk crack on campus, downtown, and pulled it up and brought it to us. It is a weed, pretty weed, but it will grow many places that it is not welcome, which is my definition of a weed. I fight it, and the wife yells for me to leave it alone.

      I love them! I try to keep them in a pot to keep them from seeding all over, but I like plants that come back. Snapdragon, delphiniums, campanula, and hops are some of my favorites to keep is decent sized pots (hops don't really reseed, but they can take over an area as the roots create a new plant similar to a trumpet vine).
      I like your hollyhock, but I have enough of them.

      I ran it through the flower identifying app on my phone. It comes up with 2 possibilities the first choice is High Mallow (malva sylvestris) like Jacksparrow says.

      Great phone app called likethatgarden It's a great app.

      Also said possibly an Antwerp hollyhock, but the first description fit perfectly. Name:  image.jpg
