Plant ID please....

Tried to upload these photos earlier but I think they were too large so trying again. We have no recollection of planting these tall (4ft) and wide (2ft) beautiful pink plants but would love an ID. Someone on an unrelated site has suggested cosmos. We do have many white cosmos but would never knowingly have planted pink ones!



They look like Malva (Musk Mallow) flowers.

It appears you are right Shirley tulip. We have just checked back and we did indeed order some seeds of Malva moschata (slez piÅūmovy) two years ago.....

I had looked up mallow when we started searching but rejected it because of the very different leaves of the common mallow.

Many thanks.

I did have some white ones years ago, very pretty flowers.
