From Oregon Flora, Gardening with Natives:
Meadow checkerbloom’s blush-colored flowers provide abundant nectar for hummingbirds, native bees, butterflies (particularly the endangered Fender’s blue butterfly), and other wildlife. Blooming through the summer, this tall wildflower is a perfect addition to a meadow or butterfly garden. Meadow checkerbloom is listed as a plant of conservation concern in Oregon, where roadside spraying programs threaten its remaining wild populations. This member of the mallow family prefers areas with moist soil and full sun.
