threelobe false mallow, Malvastrum coromandelianum

Looking up threelobe false mallow took me on a journey to Australia, then Florida, and India, and Texas and beyond. But none of them had much to say about this species beyond its shrubby weediness. The plants themselves started in tropical America, and have journeyed around the world. With us so far they're in AL, FL, HI, LA, MA, NJ, PA, and TX. Monroe Co FL, 1/26/13. Mallow family, Malvaceae.
