You are missing out if you don't plant this tough, drought tolerant, prolific bloomer.
This globe mallow Sphaeralcea munroana is hands down the wonder plant of my garden. It scorns severe freezing temperatures and prolonged periods of intense heat and drought without so much as a burned leaf or slight wilt and the pollinators love it.
I've enjoyed this plant so much that I've added a second. The new one has pink blooms and the foliage is a bit different; the leaves are more slender. I'll keep you posted as to how it performs in my most difficult flower bed.
