Wildflower: Winecup

The deep purple of this flower makes it no surprise it’s called the winecup. You can see these flowers from early spring into summer. Both bees and butterflies may consider this flower their own winecup as they enjoy the nectar it provides. The roots can be boiled and made into a tea for humans to drink to help alleviate pain.
