Description:

Quite woody stem but no leaves present. Just this single plant in the middle of a newly-created flower meadow, in which all the other flowering plants had died. I haven't seen anything similar around here lately.

Musk-mallow in wildseed mix.

I too was puzzled when finding it there as I never see this species usually locally (White Peak). However, apparently it was included in the wildseed mix, described as 'a calcareous meadow grassland mix'.
