Many thanks for the comments. I was unsure because of the size of the flowers and the fact that it is so bushy and tall. It has a very wide girth. I have other M. sylvestris in the garden and they are very upright and quite compact, with much larger flowers even though they are still quite small.
The flowers on the plant in question are tiny compared to the other Malvas and Lavateras that I have or have had in the garden. The largest are only 3.5cm in diameter.
But as you say Nut, it is a fine specimen.
