These are very easy to grow desert mallows where the seedlings range from light pink, almost white to a dark orange/red, and everything in between. They need full sun and have a very long flowering time from early spring to early winter. While they can handle extra water they do best after established in a dry area. Water 3x over they summer for max flowers. Good bee plant too.
