Purple Poppy Mallow

General Information

Purple Poppy Mallow has magenta, cup shaped blooms that resemble poppies. The large, deeply lobed leaves of the poppy mallow create unique interest, and a great backdrop of color and texture for the brilliant blooms. The handsome, cutleaf foliage of this mat forming perennial makes an excellent ground cover for rock gardens, meadows and native plantings.  It can also be grown to cascade over a wall. Attracts bees and butterflies. Blooms Summer through frost.  This perennial wildflower sprawls across the ground, producing several vine-like stems from a central taproot. These stems are light green to dull reddish purple and covered with spreading white hairs.

Additional Information

Callirhoe involucrata thrives in Full Sun.  It will grow 6-12″ tall and spread 2 to 3 feet.  Plant in zones 4 to 8.  Its long tap root makes it drought tolerant once established.  However, it is also difficult to transplant an established plant.  May self seed in optimum conditions. Tolerates dry, rocky soil.  Drought resistant.  Poppy Mallow is a native of North Dakota, Wyoming, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Utah.

Care & Shipping Notes

Purple Poppy Mallow is an easy to grow plant. There are no serious disease or insect problems.  Crown rot may occur in poorly drained soil.   Very drought tolerant. Rabbits may feed on the foliage.  NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN THESE US STATES AND TERRITORIES: AK, HI, GM, PR, VI. Also, WE NO LONGER SHIP TO CALIFORNIA due to Department of Ag restrictions on live plants.

    OUTSTANDING PLANT!!! I got this plant last fall and it was the healthiest plant I have EVER ordered online. It had no blooms but healthy leaves and was much more substantial in size than I expected. I put it in the ground and it grew a bit until I mulched it over for the winter. I uncovered it in May and it started growing and blooming like crazy! Three months later it has spread out at least 4′ if not more, in all directions. I actually had to put some stakes in as it was spreading into my rose bushes. It requires hardly any watering or care. The blooms close up at night and reopen in the daytime. No insects eat it, no deer eat it; it is one of the best, easiest plants I’ve ever had and I am typically a plant killer. I am in zone 5, edge of 4, soil is sandy/well draining, 6+ hours of sun. I’m trying to find other places on the property to plant more of these. You will not be disappointed!
