Callirhoe triangulata (Malvaceae)
Clustered Poppy Mallow
Callirhoe triangulata, named for its triangular basal leaves, is native to the Southeast and Midwest, where it thrives in sunny scree and open-gravel areas. Very drought-tolerant and long-blooming, Poppy Mallow has an open, airy form that can trail like a groundcover, or wend through upright neighbors. The bright magenta cup-shaped flowers start in June and last all summer, and can take heat and dry sandy soils. A great addition to the xeric or dry meadow garden.
