I planted seeds and I believe this to be Malva or hibiscus?

The plant flowered at 2 ft tall.

I just know you experts will know.

I think it's Lavatera trimestris 'Silver Cup'. If the flowers are deep, deep pink then it could be L. 'Loveliness'. Same family as Hibiscus and Malva.

I vote for Silver Cup, too. Check out the photos in the database:
Annual Mallow (Malva trimestris 'Silver Cup')
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
