Callirhoe papaver

Callirhoe papaver
woodland poppy mallow
Common name woodland poppy mallow
Family malvaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-9)
Flowers purple-pink (summer)
Size 12"
Light sun
Cultural notes well drained soil

Similar to C. involucrata, which we've grown for years. In this species, the flowers are held somewhat higher above the foliage. And at least our single seed-grown specimen has more deeply cut but at the same time more smoothly lobed leaves, for a rather different look.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: Houston rock garden
