Musk Mallow

These plants overrun my garden. They came in, years ago, in a load of topsoil, but they are pretty, and tough, so I don't try too hard to get rid of them all.

And the bees like them about as much as they like the borage, if I need another reason to keep them.

These plants do look pretty in your photos. I probably would not try to eradicate them if I could keep them somewhat under control.

They look so pretty and I love chamomile tea.

The musk mallow - is it similar to marsh mallow? I found so many health benefits in the herb!

This is really beautiful flower. I so much like its soft pink color. Your photos are beautiful too.

I've always been fascinated by the delicate flowers of the 'mallow'. Beautiful shots!

There a nice colour, and I like the shape of the stamens. Or are they the other one, who's name I've forgotten? Either way, the sticky uppy bits in the middle are nice
