Saw this plant in a commercial and snagged a few pics. Its a large shrub or perennial that has long stems with lavender looking flowers at the end of them.

My only thought is Rose of Sharon.

Maybe Rose Of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus)? My grandmother called them 'Althea'. That's my best guess. Good luck!

Hard to tell for sure but I think Roses Of Sharon (Hibiscus sinosyriacus) comes close too.

Hibiscus syriacus is very late to flower here.

Could it be a mallow of some sort?

It does look like Lavatera. Can you tell us what the commercial was? If we can view the commercial it may help.
