Plant Description and Details

Munro's Globemallow should have a starring role in any low-water landscape. Wavy-margined, "Geranium"-like leaves and thin-petalled orange flowers line the length of the multiple stems. Hardy for dry, well-drainedspots, it sends a taproot down to get moisture. Blooms its first year, all summer long. The bright, cheery flowers glow brightly against its native ground - harsh, rocky, dry sites.
