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.

Product arrived with other items ordered, and all were in poor condition, ie yellow and dry leaves. Have ordered many of the same items before, and had no issues with them. Customer Service responded to my complaint very quickly via email. Two of the three I purchased this year appear to be surviving. Purchased two of these plants last year, and although small they are coming back nicely and am looking forward to the beautiful blooms they produce.

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Callirhoe involucrata:
I don't know if I should play favorites with my perennials but if I did, this would be it. This beauty blooms from early summer to frost. Its trailing stems weave among the perennial bed, complimenting but never smothering it's neighbors. It does beautifully in the most difficult hot dry locations. I've also gotten the occasional seedling volunteer, which is very appreciated.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this plant again
from Santa Fe, NM
Great color! Great ground cover...unfortunately, my cottontails love it, though it does grow back when there is sufficient food sources for the critters!
i would not buy this again

Never grew for me
Planted a couple of these in my xeric garden and they never grew at all. Other plants that were in same order did fine, nothing from these. They were small and spindly and did not make it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Always Satisfied With This One
By Old Lady
from Southwest Michigan
I have purchased this before from HC, so I know what a great plant it is. I grows quickly to fill in an area, and will thrive in sandy, pebbley, loam, and clay loam soils. The plant about doubled in size since I planted it. A photo can't quite capture the beauty of its color...it blooms all summer and the foliage stays healthy and attractive. No pesticide needed, and crowds out weeds by itself.
Surprised at these toughies!
from Los Angeles CA
They arrived small, shriveled leaves, thought they were dead. Wrote to complain and got a fast email back to plant them and see how they grow-don't count them out. They have all survived 3 weeks now- it's November. I have them covered with wire cloches because of the rabbit population. I hear they like it, butAm going to try anyway. I will love to see the wine colored flowers
not so much
from Kennesaw GA
Ordered four; all were tiny plants when arrived (approx.3/4 inch wideand tall), Only one was strong enough to survive but it grew well and was about15 inches coverage and bloomed out beautifully with about 15 blooms that were very pretty. Then the deerate them, and most of the plant, that very night. It survived but only grew back partially.
from Olney Springs, CO
I love the Callirhoe, I have even ordered for a couple of my friends for their rock gardens

Very delicate looking but tough
By The rabbit
from Wolf Point MT
Using the plant on a dry area. Very delicate, but seems very hardy in a challenging spot. Love the color of the flowers.
from Laramie, WY
The two plants I ordered arrived very tiny and with the label "I'm asleep." However, they took off beautifully! I planted them in June and they were flowering vigorously by early August. They bloomed until frost.
I need more of these.
from OFallon, Missouri
Beautiful wine colored flowers. They didn't grow a lot this year, but I heard that they really take off in their second year. I can't wait!
A Must Have! Tough and blooms and blooms!
By Maisy Daisy
This little known plant will thrive in both part sun and full sun. It is tough and will do ok in poor soil. Several of my neighbors who also garden have admired this plant. I love the beautiful fuchsia flowers!

Rabbits love this
from Las Vegas Valley, NV
Love the plant but a favorite of local rabbits. Keeps coming back only to be attacked again.
Excellent for hot, dry, difficult areas
I grow this in the "hell strip" between sidewalk and curb. This area gets drenched in salt from the snow plow trucks in the winter and bakes in the heat all summer, but the Poppy Mallow flourishes.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
