Here is an odd Mallow that every collector needs to grow at least once and we're collectors so of course we grow it.  We've had this in our sunny border for 8 years now and give it no attention other than an admiring glance and a shout out for being so low maintenance.  A robust Croatian to 7' or 8' or more and which gives the impression of a bushy Grape-leafed Hollyhock with clusters of 2" white flowers.  The petals open at the base showing the green calyx behind as a 5 pointed star in the center of the flower and there is just something wonderfully endearing about this subtle bit of trickery.
