    In US? "Zones" outside US/Canada have little use. Could you tell us about the size and may add photo of the plant (with leaves). 10 stamens, I would say Geranium. Jun 7, 2019 at 9:11

    Do you have any picture that shows the leaves? Plants are actually easier to identify by leaf than by a single flower. You need to give a detail description of the plant, if you do not have a better picture. Without it my best guess would be some kind of perennial geranium. Not the large red flowered annual, which is not actually a geranium. A true geranium. But, that is just a shot in the dark. That is why I did not include under answer

  • +1 for good macro photo. Nice bocca. That's the background being out of focus to place attention on the subject. But, yes, some leaves would help.
