Hi Kx1970, Welcome!

I agree, that looks like a beautiful Hollyhock (Alcea). We have 2 pages of them listed in our database with photos and growing information:

Beautiful hollyhocks, and Ellesmere Port is a beautiful place to grow them. Smiling
After it blooms, be sure to save the seed heads in a paper bag. Thumbs up
