Another underutilized beauty! Callirhoe is a showy North American native that provides a very long season of bloom. Brilliant cerise-red upward facing 2”-3” cup-shaped flowers are borne on long trailing stems, starting in June and continuing for much of the summer. There is also a pristine pure white flowering form named ‘Logan Calhoun’. Callirhoe is an ideal plant for trailing over stones in a rock garden or for placement at the top of a wall or raised bed where it will create a long-lasting cascade of color. If grown on flat ground it will form a wide spreading carpet of long stems and finely cut foliage topped by brightly colored blossoms. It forms a deep tap root so is tolerant of drought once established. Fast draining rocky or sandy soil is its preferred site and in those conditions it may self seed freely. Callirhoe is intolerant of soggy winter soil so is not a good choice for heavy clay soil. Hardy to Zone 4.
