Commonly known as Poppy Mallow or Wine Cups, Callirhoe involucrata is a native wildflower that decorates the garden with a summer-long display of bright magenta-pink flowers. A sprawling grower.  Wine cups sprawls with low growing foliage topped with bright purple magenta cup-shaped flowers that grow in mid-spring through fall. It’s a wonderful ground cover that grows up to 6-12 inches tall and spread about 3 inches wide. The plant works just as beautifully in a formal garden as it does in naturalized areas or spreading over walls – especially thanks to their white center. The Buffalo Rose plant is popular for the masses of pink or reddish-purple cup-shaped blooms with a white spot in the middle, that gives them the name wine cups. The flowers are borne at the tips of the stem. They open in the morning and close in the evening. Drought resistant perennial plant.
