FOTD 8th July 2022: Mallow

This is the surprise of the summer for me. When my gardener finished this lonely stalk with buds was left at the side of the garden. I asked the gardener what it was. He did not know but said it must be a summer flower and is full of buds. Yesterday the first bud opened and this giant flower appeared. It looks like a hibisuc but only the flower, its style is quite unique. I had a look in my plant finder ap and it tells me it is a Mallow, although I have never seen such a large mallow before. I am now waiting for the rest of the buds to open.
