    This looks like a type of Mallow plant. There are several common varieties grown in the SE. I found this one as a variety grown in SD. http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=MASY
    Let us know if we’re on the right track.

    Maybe an old garden favorite, holly hocks?

    I agree with hollyhocks. Thought perhaps hibiscus, but prob. not in SD. Hollyhock might come back in a place it was planted before, even after a cold winter.

    Possibly Abutilon, also known as Flowering Maple
