    Maybe a species of Indian mallow. Too bad we don’t have the photo of flower bud & opened flower to help narrow down which one is yours. Check out some the species in the genus with similar fruit/seed pod , and see if you have a match. Click on the images to enlarge from these included links. Best wishes!
