Desert Globemallow

also known as:

Desert Mallow
Apricot Mallow
Desert Hollyhock
Mal de Ojo
Sore-eye Poppy

My favorite wildflower, it grows in clumps among the sage brush and juniper, its especially prolific when we have a wet fall and spring. I watch carefully through out the early spring months, looking for the grey green foliage to come up and then I wait eagerly for the deep orange flowers to bloom. They start blooming in May and can go into the end of June carpeting the desert floor with its color.
