I live in Southern California and right before the summer this big leaf plant started to grow in my yard. The big leaves went yellow so I just would cut them and the stem got taller and taller and the leaves got smaller and now at the top of this 7 foot plant you see this flower growing along with more buds. At first I thought it was a squash but then it just kept growing taller and taller What is this plant? Can someone name it for me please.

    I think that’s what we called a hollyhock when I was growing up.
