Callirhoe involucrata is a vertically challenged hibiscus relative from the Midwest and Southwest US that is truly a distinctive addition to the garden. Callirhoe involucrata begins its show in the spring when the 2" round cutleaf foliage emerges from the basal clump. The stems spread out horizontally to 3' then, starting in late spring, are smothered with 1-2" wide flowers resembling cups of red wine...in size, color, and shape. Wine cups are great for the front of the border or cascading down a wall. If you are going to fall off the horticultural wagon, you might as well do it with a wine cup in your hand!
