Plants for the Southwest
Orange Globe Mallow, Sphaeralcea munroana, brings a blast of orange-cream to the mid-summer desert garden. A flowering perennial native to the Great Basin of the Western US, this rugged xeric plant thrives in the most challenging hot, sunny dry garden conditions.
Orange Globe Mallow can grow to 3' or 4' tall and thrives in sunny areas. When temperatures will remain above 65 degrees, sow seeds in a moist, bright spot and lightly cover with soil. Germination can take 21 to 60 days. Orange Globe Mallow will freely reseed in an area where it is happy. Frost hardy in zones 6-9.
*Please Note* Because our seeds are harvested by hand, without the use of machines, a small amount of plant matter may be present in the seed packets.
Originally founded as a landscaping project to create habitat for hummingbirds, Dry Heat Gardens is a small gardening company providing plants and seeds for Southwest gardens. Everything is grown on our property and harvested by hand. To protect our hummingbirds and all of our backyard friends, we never use pesticides or herbicides of any kind.
Our home garden is located in Los Lunas, New Mexico. Every day begins with watering, weeding, pruning, seed collecting and product photography. Every seed and plant that we sell has proven itself to thrive in our hot and dry desert conditions. We never resell plants or seeds from 3rd party suppliers.
We carry flowering trees such as the Desert Willow and Bird of Paradise; both annual and perennial flowers such as Cosmos, Zinnias, Marigolds, Hollyhocks and Bearded Irises.
Thanks for stopping by! We hope your enjoy our store!
Plants & seeds grown with love in our home garden.
Head of Cultivation
I am DeAnna Vincent, professional photographer and lifetime gardener. In 2017, my husband Johnpaul and I purchased five acres of property in Los Lunas, New Mexico and I immediately set about creating a backyard sanctuary to attract hummingbirds. My project was very successful and not only did I create a wonderful habitat for hummingbirds but I also had a yard full of beautiful plants producing copious quantities of seeds. The abundance of seeds became the inspiration for starting a gardening company and Dry Heat Gardens was born!
