Woodland gardens have a special calming quality; shady, humusy but often with a limited range of flowers that are happy in the low light. Add Bloodroot to the list. Come mid spring these little darlings poke out of the ground in a tightly rolled curl. Magically, the leaves unfurl and the snowy flowers are revealed. A few little plants are fun and because they naturalize readily, in a few years there will be a sweep of white followed by a carpet of attractive round leaves.

A very elegant woodland plant native to most of North America east of the Rockies. In spring pure white, star-like flowers centred with yellow stamens arise from the soil clasped by the interesting leaves. The star of the spring woodland garden. The common name arises from the juice extracted from the root of the plant which is bright red. Nursery grown.

Bloodroot is a fantastic native plant with beautiful white flowers in early spring followed by interesting lobed green foliage that is present all summer. Easy to grow and self-sows readily, it naturalizes beautifully with ferns and grasses.

Info

Bloodroot is a charming woodland wildflower with very unusual foliage and flower. The early spring flower rises from the center of its single curled leaf, opening in full sun, and closing at night. Bloodroot can grow up to 12 inches tall with a single lobed leaf on each stem. It is found growing in medium to moist shade along rocky slopes in woods, in ravines, and along bluffs. Like most members of the Poppy Family, Bloodroot lasts for a relatively short time. The red juice from the underground stem was used by?Native Americans?as a dye for baskets, clothing, and war paint, as well as for insect repellent. The generic name, from the Latin sanguinarius, means bleeding. Hardy to zones 3 - 8.

Info

Lovely blue gray leaves daintily lobed and scalloped with large flowers of transparent opalescent white, like the ghost of some huge anemone on 6 to 9" stems. Besides the famous fully double form, Bloodroot often has light pink or extra petaled forms, as well and plants with heavily dissected leaves.
