Bush's Poppy Mallow (Callirhoe bushii

Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Good drainage is essential. Avoid humusy, moisture retentive soils. Although many of the callirhoes (e.g., Callihhoe involucrata) require full sun, this plant will tolerate some light shade. Generally plants will spread in the garden, but will not root at stem nodes. Plants may be grown from seed and may self-seed in the garden in optimum growing conditions. Long tap root gives this plant good drought tolerance but makes transplanting of established plants difficult.
