A Mid-west native, Callirhoe involucrata grows best in dry soils in full sun to partial shade. The plant has a long taproot, which makes it drought tolerant, but transplanting established plants difficult.
C. involucrata features red, cup-shaped flowers with attractive foliage. Has a good creeping habit and makes a good groundcover as it forms thick mats up to 1 foot tall.
