Callirhoe bushii has upward-facing, cup-shaped, magenta blooms for a long season on spreading plants that get about 18" tall. A perennial, Callirhoe bushii will weave through flower beds, but does not root at nodes. Very similar to C. involucrata but with a much more upright form.
An uncommon plant, Callirhoe bushii is native to the Ozark / Ouachita Range of Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma and occasionally in Missouri and Iowa. It is typically found in open woodlands, meadows, and on rocky dry slopes.
Also know as Poppy Mallow, Callirhoe bushii prefers full sun to part shade and medium to dry soils. Its deep central tap-root makes it very drought tolerant, once established, but also harder to move.
