This squashish looking plant is growing by our chimney. So far it has no blossoms or blooms, but I don't know what it is and if we should yank it or let it go! Confused

Alcea
maybe rosea ?

It has a solid tribe?
It is not climbing?

Those are gorgeous! I would be very happy if that's what it is! It's just odd that there are no blossoms or anything. We moved in at the beginning of June and it has definitely grown since then, but no flowers.

Resembles Malva, perhaps Malva sylvestris. I would leave it until it flowers then you will have a better idea.

Hollyhock is a good suggestion too.

Hollyhock was another option we were thinking about. I hope it gets some sort of flower on it, we have several mystery plants around here. The joys of moving into a new (old) home!

mostly flowers up to the second year, is the multiannual

Malva this is certainly not,
Here are the big leaves, malva has a much smaller and a different shape

I would also think Malva sylvestris, I've grown the plant and the leaves are quite big..at least the basal leaves..

The leaves look to big to be Malva, I would vote Hollyhock.

From leaf photo's I've viewed it looks as if Malva has larger leaves than Alcea. For comparison, some of the images in the ATP database show fairly large leaves for Malva sylvestris:
French Hollyhock (Malva sylvestris)
French Hollyhock (Malva sylvestris 'Zebrina')
Mallow (Malva sylvestris 'Windsor Castle')
Mallow (Malva sylvestris 'Mystic Merlin')
Mallow (Malva sylvestris 'Brave Heart')
Mallow (Malva sylvestris var. mauritiana 'Bibor Felho')
Good leaf photos for Malva sylvestris also if you scorll down this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Images in the ATP database also shows some Alcea with large leaves but they don't appear to be quite as large as Malva leaves:
Hollyhock (Alcea rosea)
Hollyhock (Alcea rosea 'Summer Carnival Rosy Red')
Hollyhock (Alcea rosea 'Majorette')
Hollyhock (Alcea rosea 'Scarlet O'Hara')

Some of the leaves are bigger than my hand, probably 7 inches or so across. There aren't any blossoms or anything on the plant at all and I'm getting impatient! Whistling
