Callirhoe digitata (Fringed Poppy Mallow)

Fringed poppy mallow (or Standing Winecup) is a Midwest native perennial which most frequently occurs in dryish, rocky soils in prairies, meadows and limestone glades. Plants grow on erect, slender, branching stems which are covered with a bluish-white bloom. Plants have small upper leaves and general plant appearance is lean and lanky. Solitary, upward facing, cup-shaped, five-petaled, magenta flowers bloom from mid-spring to September. Flower petal edges are fringed which gives the plant its common name. Leaves are palmately divided into five to seven finger-like lobes.
