Wildflowers of Southern Arizona
Mallow (Malvaceae) family.
The flowers are on tall, slender, graceful flower stalks. The flowers are 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm) wide and have 5 broad, fan-shaped, uncupped, notched petals and yellow anthers. The petals are held wide open, almost flat unlike the cupped petals of typical globemallows. The leaves are green, hairy, uncrinkled, unruffled, variably scalloped, usually 3-lobed, and elongated to about twice as long as wide. The similar Desert Globemallow (Sphaeralcea ambigua) has broader, shorter, scalloped and ruffled leaves
