New Mallow!

It's always exciting for me to learn a new plant! This one is in the Mallow family and only blooms if monsoon rains are good. I found these examples on the Esperero trail, but there are many plants along the road into Sabino Canyon as well. The flowers are VERY tiny, but really interesting. Close-up photos of Ayenia (Ayenia filiformis) are available at the link.
