Sphaeralcea ambigua rosacea- Parish Mallow

Sphaeralcea ambigua rosacea can be found through the desert areas of California and the Western States. The Parish Mallow will grow to be a 2-3 foot shrub. Sphaelralcea ambigua rosacea will still be blooming when little else is. This image was taken in the garden at Borrego Springs. Parish Mallow will do well in disturbed areas such as roadsides or gardens with little care. Sphaeralcea ambigua rosacea has one of the most spectacular blooms of the desert. In the late Spring and Summer Sphaeralcea ambigua rosacea is larval food for the Northern White Skipper and a great addition to the Butterfly Garden.
