Bloodroot 3 For $11.99 Description


Bloodroot, known scientifically as Sanguinaria Canadensis, is a member of the poppy family. Popular as a ground cover.

Bloodroot offers beauty and delicacy to your home garden when it blooms. A thick stem protrudes from the ground in early spring bearing the flower's leave. Once unfolded, Blood root reveals unique white flowers with 8 to 12 petals and yellow stamen that only last a few days, yet the foliage remains until the plant goes dormant. Native to Eastern North America, the bloodroot plant produces red sap, hence, its name.

Care and Maintenance

Bloodroot is considered a spring ephemeral and is a terrific choice for a woodland-type garden. Like many seasonal rhizomes, Bloodroot multiplies in spring. Bloodroot prefers being planted in moist, well-drained soil; however, this plant will grow in dry thickets, woods, and near water. Planted in your garden, Bloodroot grows best in partial sun for the flowers to open. Blooming from March to May, the leaves will unfurl and disappear at the end of summer. Bloodroot can grow up to 20 inches tall.

Bloodroot's flowers grow to 2 inches long. If you plant a colony of them, the impact of its lovely flower adds a powerful visual effect while it lasts. Once the Bloodroot flower dies, its single leaf remains―bearing an intriguing shape and color. This basal leaf is large for this small perennial and grows even larger in summer, up to 10 inches wide. Bloodroot bears an attractive leaf that is gray-green in color, with its underside paler than the upper side. The leaf is rounded, with deep lobes and showy veins.


Bloodroot is amazing to watch grow, based on the way the plant emerges from the ground. The unopened leaf envelops the flower bud if sheltering it from the chilly temperatures of early spring. The leaf slowly unfurls, and the flower eventually peels off from the plant body. Bloodroot plant seeds are spread by ants that use them as food. Deer also make food from Bloodroot plants in early spring. Make Bloodroot an essential part of your perennial woodland garden to enjoy its unique blooming season.
