Callirhoe involucrata


Wine Cups

I love this little rambler. In the photo, I have it in my garden frolicking with the euphorbias for a happy combination. Wine Cups bloom all summer starting in late May and continue until frost. The trailing stems weave in and out of other perennials and pop up to show their colorful blooms. They can also be planted at the top of a wall to spill over and down the wall. Native to central US, they are a larval host and nectar source for the gray hairstreak butterfly.

Full sun. Good drainage. Height 6-12’”. Spread 2-3′. Zones 4-7.
