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.

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.
