Not in any database I can find. There have been a TON of Japanese Beetles on it, but they don't seem to be eating it. It's fallen over, but when standing it's about 6 feet tall.
Any ideas?

That's my impression, too, but I have no idea which one it is.

I have to go look up Japanese Beetle - I have no idea what that is. The plant is a Hollyhock.

Hollyhock (Alcea rosea)

If there are some seedlings around, they may be blooming next year, but the mama plant blooming now will likely perish over winter. Hollyhocks are biennial.

I envy your blissful ignorance! I wish I had no idea what a Japanese beetle was!
