Great shot, Keith!
A flower I have never come across. It is very delicate and alluring. Thanks for sharing this with us.
There are only nine species and they are native to North America. They certainly are a treasure to find and they tend to occur in isolated clumps. Even though they are fragile there is no harm in picking them since they have a vigorous root system that makes them a hearty perennial. See this photo: Callirhoe-involucrata-BKU3
Lovely! I saw a white one once.
I love these little treasures! I have noticed a lot of intra-specific color variation but I've never seen a white one -- lucky you!!! I was surprised to learn there are only nine species, all NA natives with one critically endangered. This one is common though and as part of the botany course I took it was required to include the root system with the vegetative part of the plant. Well, for such a dainty thing, that was one tough job I'll never forget. Here's a picture of it: Callirhoe-involucrata-BKU3
nice picture !
