DescriptionMunro's globemallow attracts many species of bees, a few of which are specialists, requiring pollen and nectar only from Sphaeralcea and related genera. These include the ground-nesting bees Diadasia diminuta, D. lutzi, and Colletes sphaeralcea. The Diadasia are proficient and dedicated pollinators, and have been found colonizing trial plots on research farms (Cane 2011).
