In a Nutshell:
* Purple poppy mallow is a mat-forming, Missouri native perennial which most frequently occurs in dryish, rocky soils in prairies, fields and along roadsides scattered in several counties mostly northeast of the Missouri River.
* Plants typically form a low foliage mound from 6-9" tall on procumbent stems which spread along the ground to 3' wide.
* Solitary, upward facing, cup-shaped, five-petaled, poppy-like, magenta flowers (to 2.5" wide) continuously appear on thin stems above the foliage from mid-spring to fall. Stamens form a prominent central column typical of mallow family members, but with distinctive style branches.
* Leaves are palmately divided into 5-7 finger-like lobes. more...
* Plants resent root disturbance so the seed is best sown in situ in April. more...
