Four -five foot tall plant with 4-5 inch flowers. Looks like hollyhock but leaf is unlike any I have seen on hollyhocks and it is blooming now in October in upstate NY! Seed pod looks different too.

Welcome to the forums Cooptrain.

Thank you, everyone for your quick responses. Silversurfer, I just this week return from Perthshire and Pitlochry. Orange Crocosimia still blooming there, ours are long past here.
