Callirhoe involucrata (Malvaceae)
(cal-eh-ROW-ee in-vol-yew-CRAY-tah)
Prairie Poppy Mallow

An overlooked and easy-to-grow plant found primarily in the prairie states, it has a rambling habit with leaves that hug the ground. Poppy-like flowers are a wine-to-magenta color, and bloom from late spring through summer. Like many prairie natives, it has a carrot-like taproot that reaches deep to enhance drought-tolerance. Good for hot and dry sites, exposed slopes, and rock gardens.
