Quick Overview:

Callirhoe involucrata, commonly called purple poppy mallow, is a mat-forming perennial which most frequently occurs in dryish, rocky soils in prairies, fields and along roadsides. Plants typically form a low foliage mound from 6-9″ tall on procumbent stems which spread along the ground to 3′ wide. Solitary, upward facing, cup-shaped, five-petaled, poppy-like, magenta flowers (to 2.5″ wide) continuously appear on thin stems above the foliage from mid-spring to fall. Stamens form a prominent central column typical of mallow family members, but with distinctive style branches. Leaves are palmately divided into 5-7 finger-like lobes.

Description

Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Grows well from seed and may self-seed in the garden in optimum growing conditions. Long tap root gives plant good drought tolerance but makes transplanting of established plants difficult.
