Callirhoe involucrata Winecups



Callirhoe involucrata Winecups

Callirhoe involucrata, commonly called wine cups, purple poppy mallow or buffalo rose, is a native North American member of the Malvaceae (mallow family) hardy in zones 4-8. This is a small genus of a dozen species that are most diverse in the central United States. The drought-tolerant perennial produces showy flowers along its sprawling stems all summer long. Although it is only about 4-6 inches tall, it may appear taller as it often grows up and is supported by neighboring plants.

Good, drought-tolerant groundcover. An outstanding and very attractive plant with low growing, deeply dissected dark green foliage that gives rise to an explosion of electric purple, single, upright flowers from July to early September. This plant behaves like an ivy. It is taprooted and can be difficult in containers if not well spaced. Let it drape over stone walls or creep between stones.
