This plant is also known as white winecup. The blooms can be totally white or they can be streaked with purple or red. In Texas, they are native to the Central Texas region. They are low growing, have tuberous roots to assist with their survival during drought from which they spread into neat clumps and stay green in the winter. In my area, they bloom from February to June. They will not survive in total shade, but do well in dappled and partial shade. They are adaptable to most soil types, even caliche. An unusual bloom on a this long lived plant makes it worthy of planting in a cultivated setting. There is a cultivar that is pure white.
