Wine Cups, Purple Poppy Mallow, Buffalo Rose

This North American native perennial has an abundance of common names, a testament to its appeal and its wide distribution across North America. Growing one foot tall and spreading 3 foot or more wide, this trailing plant has attractive, deeply lobed, palmate leaves. Late spring and early summer bring masses of showy, cup-shaped blossoms of magenta, adored by bees and butterflies. Plant in full sun with decent draining soils, where it will be drought tolerant once established. Useful as an accent or in mass, spreads but doesn't smother, looks great amongst rocks, bunchgrasses, perennials and shrubs and can spill over walls. Mixed reports regarding deer resistance. A Plant Select winner as well as a Plant of Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
