Searching Genus for CALLIRHOE

8 species of mallow-like perennials native to North America.

CALLIRHOE involucrataAll Season662
Wine Cups, Prairie Rose15cm  Zone: 3
Native to the short-grass prairie and sandy, dry soils of western and mid-western North America and an outstanding plant for the garden. Inappropriately, it seems the generic name of this denizen of dry places honors Callirrhoe, the daughter of Achelous, a minor Greek river god. The flowers are glowing, satiny magenta cups, up to 2" across which begin in June and never cease until frost. Its leafy flowering stems are prostrate and will spread out 1-3' from the crown by midsummer, so give it plenty of space in a sun-baked spot.
Germination Instructions: Has an extremely hard seed-coat requiring serious sandpapering.
