DescriptionGooseberryleaf globemallow is native to North America and occurs primarily in the Intermountain region in the western states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico (La Duke 2016). It is also reported in northern California but may reach its maximum abundance in Utah (Kearney 1935). Plants are winter hardy, especially in regions with at least periodic snow cover. They are most abundant on open or disturbed sites receiving 8 to 12 inches (200-300 mm) of annual precipitation (Wasser 1982; Stevens et al. 1985).
