Winecups (aka, Purple Poppy Mallow)

Callirhoe involucrata

Callirhoe involucrata Winecups Plant Select
This native plant thrives at the front of the border, in the wild garden and in xeriscapes where it can enjoy the full sun. It blooms with wine-red flowers from April to hard frost. Perennial. Xeriscape.

Tips from the pros: Less water and some pinching back will help this plant stay more compact and keep it from spreading as wide. It does self-seed, so remove any seedlings when they are young, before the roots get a good foothold.
