The traded seed was labeled Callirhoe involucrata var. lineariloba 'Logan Calhoun', but web references place the species at C. alcaeoides. Either way, it's got white flowers and frilly leaves - a bit of a departure from their winecups relatives. Hopefully, they'll settle into our garden just as nicely.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

- Seed for C. i. var. lineariloba 'Logan Calhoun' from '04/'05 HPS/MAG exchange. Dehusked some seed, left others as is. Baggy 70F (70d; 44%G, 7-60d). Each round of nicking/scarification brought about some additional germination. Weak as seedlings, low survival rate.
- Seed for plain species from HPS/MAG '08/'09 exchange. Dehusking yielded one kidney-bean seed, which I lightly scarified with sandpaper. It germinated baggy 70 (8d)
