Henderson's Checker Mallow
If I have this identified correctly, it is a rather rare wildflower found only in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. I stand to be corrected, however on the ID. The botanical name for the species is Sidlacea hendersonii and it is found in wetlands and coastal areas.

Some kind of cultivated Sidalcea are sold here as cultivar "Miniatur Stockrose" (meaning Dwarf Hollyhock or somesuch), I guess however they must have a source species not so rare. Some look very different, others rather similar to this one... :)
