I found this plant growing between a couple lilies. Thin k it must have self sown. When I dug it up to move it, it has a long white taproot. The root broke but I replanted it anyway. Maybe some type of malva?

It has all the earmarks of a mallow. Are the leaves alternate?

It does have alternate leaves. Does not look very happy since I moved it, but hope it will live. I'll post a photo of the bloom if it does.
