Bloodroot’s unique, cigar-shaped leaves slowly unfurl and open into large, waterlily-like foliage. Bearing pristine white flowers with golden-yellow centers, Bloodroot illuminates the garden floor with breathtaking springtime beauty. Happiest with partial shade and moist soils, Bloodroot gets its name from the crimson sap that flows through its roots and stems. (Sanguinaria canadensis)

Plant Information

One of North America’s all-time native wildflower favorites, beautiful Bloodroot, a member of the poppy family, rises in early spring with unique leaves rolled up like cigars. Eventually, the foliage opens into broad leaves, reminiscent of water lilies. 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. The richly textured large leaves and breathtaking pristine white flowers make it a special plant. Best of all, Bloodroot is quite easy to grow, as long as it is given a moist shaded situation and rich woodsy soil.

        Comments about American Meadows Bloodroot:

        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.

            Q & A

            Plant With These:

            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
