These are beautiful summer flowering plants which can be found growing  along roadside verges, in hedgerows and field margins, meadows and other grassy habitats.

  1. I’ve not seen the Musk Mallow before, but the Common Mallow grows everywhere.
    Now that I’ve seen the two in your post, I think I like the paler Musk one. It looks very delicate.
