Description
One of North America’s all-time native wildflower favorites, beautiful Bloodroot, a member of the poppy family, rises in early spring with unique cigar-shaped rolled up leaves that eventually open into large, waterlily-like foliage. Then the magnificent pristine white flowers appear, from about 1 to 2" across, and literally light up the forest floor. This treasured native plant has been important for centuries, and takes its common name from the orangey red juice that oozes from the root when cut. This red pigment was used by Native Americans for face-paint, so this fact always adds interest to the species, especially for children. But to a gardener, it’s the richly textured large leaves and breathtaking flowers that make it special--pristine white beauties that are the essence of spring. Best of all, Bloodroot is quite easy to grow, as long as it is given a moist shaded situation and rich woodsy soil.

            I planted several roots in the fall of 2011 and this spring (2013) was the first spring they flowered or even showed they existed after planting!! Thankfully this is an area that I'm naturalizing so basically it's left undisturbed. Planted under a big oak tree with much leaf litter keeps the area moist which is a requirement for this plant. I must say also that there were more flowers this spring than what I planted!!

              I had several leaves unfolding, then all of a sudden a mole tore through that part of my garden. Hoping they come back next year.

                Very disappointed. Was thrilled to find the product. It was shipped timely & appeared in better shape than other mail order products. But one of the 3 seems to have simply disappeared & the other 2 show no growth...just there as planted.
