Other info: I'm really not positive of the identification of this plant. I had it labeled malva fastigiata but I can't find any other sources. After reviewing different malvas on the internet, it looks to me like malva moschata. I don't know the differences in the two varieties. [I have received an email from a nice gentleman in how to identify which malva I have, but as of 2006, I keep forgetting to study the plants.]
