Callirhoe involucrata var. bushii, Callirhoe papaver var. bushii

Callirhoe bushii and many other Callirhoe species are popular garden plants.  Callirhoe bushii is a lovely member of the poppy family, producing striking magenta flowers. First described in 1909, the plant was named in honor of Benjamin Franklin Bush (1858-1937), a prominent botanist of the time. However, considerable debate ensued over the true taxonomic status of the species and only recently has the name C. bushii been accepted as correct (Dorr 1990).
