Edited to say that my post crossed with krobra's.
It looks like Alcea rosea (Hollyhock) to me.
I love that bright orange color!

It's one of the Sphaeralcea species. Smiling

The wholesale Suncrest Nurseries, near you, grows Sphaeralcea incana so that is one possibility.

There are many species of Sphaeralcea that look similar and I don't have enough firsthand experience with them to be sure of which species it is.
