Yes, I agree, beaumooney! I wonder where it gets all of its diverse names!

I like the name buttonweed a lot. I didn't know that one. Wikipedia is great for plant info.

Thanks beaumooney! I WIKIed it and I found one of its names were buttonweed! I might use that common name too! Thanks again!

Malva neglecta. Commonly known as "cheeses" or "common mallow." I'm not sure if it's native.
