Iliamna bakeri

Iliamna bakeri

Iliamna bakeri is an uncommon species of flowering plant in the mallow family known by the common names Baker's globe mallow and Baker's wild hollyhock. It is native to northern California and southern Oregon, where it grows in mountain forests and woodland on volcanic soils. This is a perennial herb with a densely hairy stem growing from a woody caudex to heights between 30 and 70 centimeters. It produces rough-haired, three-pointed leaves on thick petioles, each one to five centimeters long. It blooms in abundant cup-shaped pink-lavender flowers with five petals each 1 to 3 centimeters long. The fruit is a small, bristly capsule. This species is endangered on the state level in Oregon. Threats to its existence include wildland fire suppression and forest habitat destruction by human activity such as logging.
