Bush's poppy mallow is native to the Great Plains, although somewhat rare in the wild. It's an herbaceous perennial that likes dry, sunny sites with loose sandy or rocky soil. A long taproot allows this plant to handle poor dry soils but can make transplanting difficult.

The taproot is a choice edible - mild and starchy like a potato. Wild foraging might not be the best option due to its small endemic range, so why not grow your own?

It's named after American botanist Benjamin Franklin Bush.
