Callirhoe involucrata
“Wine Cups”

This useful and incredibly tough tap-rooted groundcover hails from dry meadows, prairies and rocky banks of the Midwest. Ideal for spilling over the edge of dry and rock gardens, as well as more fertile, loamy spots, “Wine Cups” is also one terrific bloomer gifting us with an abundance of striking, silky, vivid magenta-pink sky-facing “poppies” 2-3” across. And backlit by the sun, oh man, they positively glow! Long-blooming from May to September, with its pretty green palmate foliage it’s a welcome visual respite from all those silvery-greys of a dry garden. Cut back to base in late Fall. A little compost in Spring makes it even more amazing. Butterflies!
