The Apricot Globe Mallow is a drought-tolerant sub-shrub and is reputed to be the most drought-tolerant of all the mallows. The leaves are gray, fuzzy and roundish with scalloped edges, much like those of a hollyhock.
The plant produces abundant apricot blooms which are an excellent source of nectar for native bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies and hummingbirds.
