Bloodroot relative, this is a perennial for those tree root infested spots where other things don't thrive – tough shaded sites will limit the wandering rhizomes – will naturalize in woodland areas! Fragrant white poppies in late winter (and often sporadically thru summer & fall) – attractive, unusual foliage. We don't find this a nuisance at all!

Asian Bloodroot, I've heard that it can be a weed in some areas, but not here, or for Punnett. It sends up clumps of Bloodroot like leaves rather widely spaced on long underground stolons, the diaphanous white flowers are in racemes above the foliage, giving a more ornamental effect than our native species.

A rare relative of our native bloodroot, only one species of this Chinese native exists. Spreading by underground rhizomes, long reddish petioles host glaucous, nearly succulent leaves that look like large wavy-edged hearts marked by light veining. Four-petaled, nearly transparent white flowers arranged in airy terminal panicles are anchored by prominent yellow stamens. At home in very shady places, let this exotic perennial colonize the ground beneath Kerria japonica 'Albiflora'.

This species is the only one in its genus which is part of the poppy family. Snow poppy hails from the woodlands of Eastern China. It is a rhizomatous (spreading though not invasive) plant that bears small pure white poppy-like flowers from late spring to summer. It has dull green, almost circular leaves that are toothed at the margins. Can be used as a ground cover on shady banks. Part shade is best in moist but well-drained soil. Can be grown in sun if adequate moisture is available.
