Sphaeralcea munroana MONROE GLOBE MALLOW

The Monroe Globe Mallow blooms in the Spring. This grows mostly just below the juniper/pinion area. During a wet spring large plantings are visible. There are some that are only 8 to 10 inches tall and some grow to 30 inches tall. They will do well in a landscape with a monthly watering. They will bloom again if they are cut down. I have seen them grazed in the western Utah desert They are easily reseeded. I have some in my desert landscape and I thin the some each year. There is not enough water from the sky if they grow to thick.
