Tips On Growing Callirhoe (Poppy Mallow)

Callirhoe (Poppy Mallow) - is a native genus of magenta or pink blooming perennials from the prairies and meadows of the mid-section of the US.

Preferred growing conditions:

  • Plant in most any soil including clay with full sun conditions. In dry Western US, mulch with gravel or other coarse texted non-bark mulch. No mulch need in Eastern US.
  • Keep regularly watered for the first growing season to establish the roots. Thereafer, infrequent but deep watering is best.
  • Protect from browsing rabbits.
  • Fertilize lightly in fall with Yum Yum Mix/compost blend.

Special comments:

  • Deadhead to prolong blooming. Cut back hard in early to mid-spring just above where the stems emerge from the carrot-like root. Stems will often detach themselves.
  • Plants are generally tap-rooted and shouldn't be divided or moved after they are established.
