Musk Mallow and Tree Mallow

A very pretty patch of musk mallow (Malva moschata) just by the ruined salt pan houses about half a mile East of Lower Largo village.

Tree mallow (Malva arborea or Lavatera arborea) at the back of the Temple Car Park in Lower Largo. The flowers are similar to but less showy than those of the garden hollyhock, which is also a member of the mallow family of plants (malvaceae).
