Clarkia purpurea v. purpurea * Winecup Clarkia

Clarkia purpurea v. purpurea is enjoyed thoroughly when it is included in seed mixes. The Winecup Clarkia puts on a great show of purple flowers in the late Spring. The Winecup Clarkia can often be found in a grassland or shrubby setting near the coast the length of the state, extending down into Baja, and up to Washington. I spread wildflower seeds in October or November with the first rains.
