Callirhoe involucrata - Winecup

Callirhoe involucrata - Winecup

The usual color of Callirhoe involucrata is a deep burgundy, from which it gets the common name Winecup. The variation lineariloba has pale purple stripes with white edges, and is only found in four or five counties in Texas. This white variation was originally lineariloba but seems to have lost all its color. As far as I know it is found only in my front yard. . .March 30 – did a little research on the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center website and found that white is indeed a normal variation, if not a common one, for this flower.
