Winecup - Texas Wildflower near Lake Pickens, Sherman, Texas by

A beautiful winecup I found near Lake Pickens in Sherman, Texas

Canon Powershot SX20 IS

Common names: winecup (wine cup, wine-cup), purple poppy-mallow
Scientific name: Callirhoe involucrata
Family: Malvaceae – Mallow family
Genus: Callirhoe Nutt. – Poppy-mallow

A gorgeous flower that grows wild in fields and along roadsides throughout Texas.

The Osage, Lakota and Dakota Indians foraged for the roots of the purple poppy-mallow. The Osage used the roots like a starch to thicken soups. The Lakota and Dakota inhaled the smoke from burning the dried root of the plant to aid in the cure of head colds. They also drank a tea made from boiling the roots to help cure intestinal problems.

I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.

Please stop by and see what I added today.

    Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
