Munro's Globemallow

Munro's globemallow (Sphaeralcea munroano, Malvaceae) is a plant of the desert plains and the lower mountain areas of western North America (British Columbia to California). The Idaho Botanical Garden, where this picture was taken, has a nice display of globemallows within the Lewis & Clark Native Plant Garden.
