Description

Sphaeralcea sulfurea is one of many members of this genus of desert natives. They are well-loved in the garden for their hardiness and abundant, colorful blooms. Guadalupe Island is one of the Mexican Channel Islands, located off the coast of Baja Mexico. Although not part of our state, the Mexican Channel Islands are considered part of the California Floristic Province, that portion of the west coast stretching from Ashland Oregon into Mexico characterized by a Mediterranean climate. Guadalupe Island globemallow grows in an open mound with gray leaves and flowers of yellow on white. It prefers a well-draining site in full sun. It is considered hardy to 25F. A great choice for a Channel Island themed garden.
