Callirhoe involucrata

Poppy Mallow, Wine Cups
Malvaceae
Ground covers, Perennials

Native from Missouri to Wyoming, south to Texas. Thick, fleshy root produces a spreading plant 6 in. tall and 2–3 ft. wide, with roundish, deeply cut leaves and a profusion of 2-in., purplish red, mallow-type flowers during hot weather. Needs good drainage but survives in infertile soil and intense heat. Except in desert regions, useful on hot slopes and in areas that get little attention. In hot desert, provide some shade and regular summer water.
