Sphaeralcea ambigua or Desert Mallow is a flowering shrub with evergreen foliage. Producing a soft coral-orange flower and light dusty green leaves, it blooms late spring to fall but has the potential to bloom all year long. Samples of this plant can be found at the entrance to the Park Office and in the rock-wall planter located between the parking lot and the amphitheater.
