Desert globemallow (Sphaeralcea ambigua) is famous for its orange, globe-shaped flowers — a favorite of wildflower watchers. Also known as apricot mallow, desert globemallow is a small shrub that can grow up to three feet tall. It is often found on dry, rocky slopes in Joshua Tree National Park. Its stems and leaves are covered with small, star-shaped hairs.
