Just saw this wildflower growing along my fence. I have checked various resources but can't seem to find out what it is. Can anyone help me identify it? Thanks.

Beth, I would say it's a Hibiscus (Mallow), but I could be mistaken.
You'll probably have better luck posting your photos in the Plant ID Forum, if you haven't done so already.

It was identified as a moth mullein. Sally, you were absolutely correct.
