Here’s another look at one of the wildflowers you saw last time, Pavonia lasiopetala, which people call rose mallow, rose pavonia, and pavonia mallow. I had this close encounter of the photographic kind in Great Hills Park on October 20.

If you’d like to step back a bit and see a whole pavonia mallow flower, you’re welcome to visit a post from 2012.
