Musk Mallow is pretty much a garden plant that easily escapes and grows wild near the original garden.  I’ve never seen it far from a garden so it must not be very successful in the wilds of Indiana.  It is not native to Indiana, and naturally there are several species of Mallow that are all similar looking, but as far as I know this one is the most common.
