Comments about Callirhoe involucrata:

This plant has stunning color that popped during the whole summer. It's not native to my state, so I kept moving the poor things around trying to decide where they fit best. Despite that abuse, they kept on blooming. Don't know yet how they survived the piles of snow in the Boston area this past winter, but hope they made it. Looked beautiful next to echinacea, liatris, blue fortune agastache, butterfly weed.
