The fuzzy, gray-green, heart-shaped foliage of Indian Mallow is probably the most distinguishing and endearing feature of this water-smart shrub. The velvety and touchable effect that it contributes to the southwestern landscape is a welcome break from the often rigid and harsh habits of the plants that normally thrive here. Regardless of its soft appearance, this desert native loves full sun and reflected heat, making it the perfect plant to use in sunny areas of your garden near walls and walkways! In addition, Indian Mallow attracts hummingbirds and butterflies who visit the bright yellow-orange blooms that adorn it from spring through summer.
