I'm thinking it's Campanula - it looks a lot like Grandiflora alba

The white flower reminds me of Balloon Flower (Platycodon). Most have five petals, but some have more.

Your Rose Mallow looks a tiny bit like my white Mallow. I bought one plant years ago and it comes up all over the garden by seed. I use a deep root water tool to help pull out very deep roots. The water tool is actually a fertilizer metal tube that forces water and fertilizer into the deep soil. I use it to loosen deep rooted plants. Mallow is very pretty and I keep the ones that seem to be in the right places and pull all the rest. Mallow root is used to make marshmallows. 

Mine looks a little like this one. It is the best tool in my shed, next to my hoe, shovel, rake ... OK so it isn't my best tool but I sure like it when pulling weeds.

I'm guessing that first weed is Rose Mallow.  I found a you-tube video describing rose mallow as edible and used in Korean cooking.  I went out and ate a leaf and a flower - I won't sat they were super-wonderful, but not bad either.  Bland

Here are 2 more weeds.  The blue flowered one grows big leaves - a foot long and 6 inches wide.  I pull them out, but they are widening their area.  5 years ago there was one, now there are dozens.

The white one just showed up.  I think I've seen them for sale, so maybe it doesn't count as a weed.

Sentient- I don't what it is, but I sure wish my weeds were that pretty!  I look forward to hearing what others think it may be.

I like your garden flowers.Thanks you so much.

An old lady in China told me that such flower could be eaten to treat disease, who knows it is true or not? difficult.

But some people in countrysides of China told me that such flower grows everywhere because birds eat the seeds and spead the seeds everywhere.

Anybody know this weed?  I keep pullling it out, and new ones come up.  Not super invasive  - it stays fairly well confined.  I have not been able to eradicate it with 10 years of effort.  I don't try really hard, but now and then I pull it all out.

It's not a hollyhock or a hibiscus. The leaves are tough and shiny. The stems are very tough. The flowers are always the same color. It's in full sun, south side of the house, and never gets water. No fragrance. The leaves have a tendency to get rust, but the plant doesn't seem to mind.
