A fast-growing upright rounded shrub with silvery-gray leaves and brilliantly colored yellow-orange blooms appearing in Spring and Summer. Grows to about 5 feet tall and wide.

If drought becomes too intense, Indian Mallow may defoliate until it receives water again. Can tolerate a wide variety of soil, however, make sure it is well drained. Native to the Sonoran Desert of California and throughout the Southwest. Hardy to 25 deg. F.
