Many of the mallow family species in Sabino Canyon have beautiful fruits, as in the photo above. (Remember, the fruit is the thing that holds/has the seeds.) In the top photo, I've shaken some of the seeds out of the capsule. Each of the divisions holds a seed. Fred and I agree that this is one of the (four species of) Indian Mallows, most likely Abutilon abutiloides
, but we'll wait for Joan Tedford to confirm. Or deny. Thanks to Ned, for taking photos for me whenever I ask. And to Gene, for getting the close up.
