Wildflower Wednesday - Country Mallow & others

The country mallow (abutilon indicum) has silky soft heart shaped pointed leaves and is a food plant for the caterpillar of the Danaid Eggfly butterfly.

Here are some others that i have not identified yet.

For many more beautiful wildflowers, visit clay and limestone.

I love the mallow family and look forward to a wonderful wildflower season next month.

I remember these flowers were part of my life in our villages, in good old days. Nostalgic.
