Local Flower ID

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in countries outside the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Looking for second opinion.
Google lense tells me:

(pink one) Malva Moschata/ Musk Mallow

(purple one) Chicory

Yes, that definitely looks like Musk Mallow to me. I can't see the leaves clearly in your photos, but if it isn't Musk Mallow then it's another of the mallows and safe to feed. I know you're in Canada and just found this info on Musk Mallow in the Ontario Weeds section of the Ministry of Agriculture website -- and it has drawings of the leaves so that you can compare (the Musk Mallow leaves are much finer and sort of more frilly than many of the other mallows): http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/cro ... mallow.htm

Best,
Nina
P.S. I've just found a whole gallery of weeds, divided into broadleaf weeds and grassy weeds on that site -- very useful and I'm going to bookmark it! http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/cro ... eedgal.htm

Yes, it's a very pretty plant and tasty for tortoises too. And it should seed itself in your garden so you will have them next year (or you could save some seeds too and sow them just in case it doesn't seed itself.
