I've had this plant in my garden for a few years, but I've got no idea what it is. It has a clump of large leaves which appear in early spring, with separate flower stalks appearing in June/July. The stalks have different shaped leaves to the ones that appear in spring. It flowers until late August and dies back in Winter.

One of the photos is from a spring cutting, which successfully rooted in a small pot, and has just started to flower.

Hi Dan, we have had quite a few suggestions on our social media. Most think this is a form of Sidalcea. Specific varieties might be Sidalcea 'Elsie Heugh' or Sidalcea 'Rosaly'

We also had a few who though this was a type of pink Dianthus.

Hope this helps?

Cheers, Nicola

That's great, definitely Sidalcea.
