    I recently went to Peru, and while there I came across this very pretty flower.

    Could anyone identify if for me?

    Wrong leaves for that one, this is more like Pavonia hastata but it don't think that's it exactly either.

    Why isn't it a hollyhock (Alcea rosea)?

    I was wondering that myself, TonyR. We have them in Ecuador, this colour and a graded-yellow one, and they're hollyhocks here.
