Desert Mallow needs full sun, good air flow and rain fall between 5 and 20 inches a year. It usually grows to a height of two feet, however specimens of up to five feet are known. Many one inch orange flowers as we see in this example, bloom on a two to three foot spike and may be found year round under ideal conditions. Gray fuzz covered foliage accounts for the common name Gray desert globemallow. Another common name for this flower is Desert Hollyhock because of the long bloom covered spikes. Blooms may occur most of the year throughout the Baja California range. The species full range also includes Utah, Nevada and New Mexico at elevations to 8000 feet'.
