I discovered it growing along my fence when I was mowing the grass. I have looked in several resources but cannot identify the plant. Can anyone help?

Might be a Rosemallow.

Thank you, Kent. You are absolutely correct in that it is a moth mullein wildflower. Awesome!

I would appreciate any suggestions on what this flower might be. It's growing in the shade on a mountain near Whitetop, Va. It has a deep cup and delicate hook in the back of the yellow flower.

@ chip

It reminds me of Pale Jewelweed (Impatiens pallida)
