NS3975 : Musk Mallow

taken 2 years ago, near to Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Musk Mallow
Musk Mallow
(Malva moschata)

The flowers are beside a short path that leads out of Broadmeadow Industrial Estate to meet a much longer footpath along the eastern bank of the River Leven. The short path is the "CP 157" referred to in the end-note, and the present picture shows its western end, at the River Leven. See NS3975 : Path to the River Leven for the other end of it.

As for the flowers of this species, it seems that they are more commonly pink than white: see, for example, NS3974 : Musk Mallow at Dumbarton Rock. Some cultivated varieties (of which this may be one) have white flowers.
Lion's Gate to Dumbarton Rock :: NS3976
This description covers a subset of West Dumbartonshire's core paths (4953 inclusive and 157) that, when taken together, make up a continuous path (49 + 50 + 52 + 53) along or near the eastern bank of the River Leven ( Link ), beginning at the Lion's Gate at Kilmalid, and ending at Dumbarton Rock(*). Two shorter paths (51 and 157) branch off from the riverside path. Others paths branch off from it near the SUDS pond at Lomondgate ( Link ); these are also included here, although they are not core paths.

(*) Note that, as of mid-2018, core path 53 stops at the east end of Riverside Lane, but it is intended that it eventually be extended to become a riverside walkway to Dumbarton Rock.

See LinkExternal link (PDF, 1.3MB, at the West Dunbartonshire Council website) for a visual index to all of these paths. Summary descriptions (where "BMIE" = Broadmeadow Industrial Estate and "CP" = Core Path):
