HOW TO GROW

Sowing: For the best germination rates, soak the seed in water overnight, then mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. After the last frost of spring, sow the treated seed ¼” below the surface of the soil. For fall planting, simply soak the seed in water overnight and direct sow ¼” below the surface of the soil. Thin or transplant seedlings.

Growing: This plant grows well in dry, rocky, or shallow soil. Since it withstands drought very well, it does not need to be watered; too much moisture will cause disease. For the most profuse blooms, remove faded blossoms.This plant will self-seed and slowly spread, making an attractive native ground cover. The stems will sprawl along the ground, primarily growing out rather than up; they may go dormant in the summer. Since mature plants have long tap roots, transplanting is not recommended.This plant attracts bees and many butterflies.

Harvesting: These vining stems and bright blossoms make attractive additions to flower arrangements. Cut the stems to the desired length and place them in water.

Seed Saving: The mature seed heads will turn a pale tan, and easily come apart when pressed. Remove the ripe seed heads and separate the seed from the husks. Store the seed in a cool, dry place.

DESCRIPTION

Because of its trailing habit and bright blossoms, Purple Poppy Mallow makes an eye-catching addition to rock gardens, draped over rock walls, or planted in hanging baskets. It also spreads eventually to form a native ground cover. In the wild, this plant can be found in open woodland and on rocky, dry slopes. Its genus name, “Callirhoe,” refers to a character of Greek mythology.
