    Callirhoe involucrata, purple poppy mallow or winecups are beautiful rose-shaped flowers blooming along 3 to 4 feet long sprawling stems that trail among nearby plants. Wine Cups, also known as Purple Poppy Mallow, or Buffalo Rose, are ideal at the edge of a flowerbed, hanging from a rock wall or over a bank. It begins to bloom in spring and continues for several months on new growth. The luscious wine-red flowers of Purple Poppy Mallow are a striking contrast when planted with the lemon yellow flowers of Missouri primrose. Native Winecups grow best in full sun or light shade in well-drained sandy or loamy soils and are drought tolerant when established.

    Callirhoe involucrata purple poppy mallow seed germination will be improved by hard scarification.  Purple poppy mallow seeds can be scarified by rubbing seeds between 2 sheets of coarse sandpaper before planting.  Scarification partially removes the outer seed coat allowing moisture to reach the small bean shaped seed inside.

        Native Purple Poppy Mallows are beautiful flowers that grow wild in rocky open areas and borders of glades from North Dakota to Wyoming, south to Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah. Naturalized farther east.   Malvaceae (Mallow Family)

When planting Callirhoe involucrata seeds in the spring germination may be improved with hard scarification before planting.  Callirhoe seeds have a hard outer shell covering a small hard bean shaped seed.  Scarification will let water penetrate the outer shell and allow the seed to begin to sprout.  Seeds can be scarified by rubbing hard between 2 sheets of coarse sandpaper.

Callirhoe involucrata purple poppy mallow plants will grow in a wide range of soils and conditions including  Clay, Clay Loam, Medium Loam, Sandy Loam, Sandy, Gravelly, Calcareous, Acid-based.  Plants often are found growing in full sun and well-drained rocky or sandy soils. Winecup plants have masses of 2 to 3 inch  magenta-colored flowers growing on sprawling stems . The trailing form with strongly lobed foliage and showy flowers are especially nice when planted with contrasting shapes, leaf textures and colors of plants such as Missouri Primrose. It can also look nice in a hanging basket or trailing over a bank or wall. Callirhoe involucrata is an attractive spreading drought tolerant perennial wildflower that does best in well-drained soil and full sun.

 Poppy mallow can be grown from tip cuttings taken in early spring before buds form.
 Poppy Mallow plants are easily grown from seed but scarification is necessary for good germination.  Plants typically flowers the second year. 
 Winecups may go into dormant in the summer but new leaves will emerge after good rains.  The growing season can be prolonged by removing old flowers before they set seed. Winecup plants are susceptible to a rust during overly wet seasons.
