Orange Globe Mallow (Sphaeralcea munroana) is a welcome sight in midsummer when the heat has driven most other flowers out of bloom. Sphaeralcea's long wands of orange flowers resemble miniature hollyhocks. A deep-rooted wildflower native to the western U.S., Orange Globe Mallow is not the least bit picky about its soil and thrives in heavy clay. Cut last year's stems back to ground level each spring for best appearance. Plant amongst Callirhoe, another clay lover, for a great summer color combination. 36-42" tall x 24" wide (seed propagated).
