A short-growing, shrubby plant, this 'scarlet globe mallow' is found growing native in semi-desert areas such as mountain foothills and dry meadows. Orange to red buttercup shaped flowers bloom on short, hairy stems. Navajo Indians were known to use the roots from this to stop bleeding, also chewing them to reduce hunger when food was scarce. The leaves can also be made into a sweet-tasting tea.
