Product Description

Bloodroot, Sanguinaria Canadensis 

Bloodroot plants are a small native perennial. They have green leaves with pretty white flowers. The Bloodroot gets its name from the roots that have blood like juice on the inside. This is by far one of the most popular wildflower perennials around. They are famously known for many different reasons. From being a medicinal herb to a beautiful flowering perennial. Whatever your reason for wanting this treasure it is sure not to disappoint. The petite white flowers and big green leaves make this something everyone will stop and pay attention too. Also considered a medicinal perennial the Bloodroot grows best in fully shaded gardens. The small attractive flower blooms appear in early Spring. Super easy to grow and low maintenance. Make sure the soil is relatively moist especially on hot Summer days.

This plant is one of many that are reproduced with the help of ants. The ants are attracted to a part of the plant's seeds called liposomes. Thus eating and then caring back to their nests. The flowers do not produce nectar, but they do provide pollen. So visits from bees are often, they do not use the flower as food.

Growing this unique perennial is easy. They are planted 2-3 inches deep and softly covered with soil. Watering is required for the first week or so and then only when conditions become very dry. The rain will generally provide enough moisture to sustain the plant quite well.

    am awaiting to see if they are going to 'sprout' and grow....three were ordered last nov, planted upon arrival, and none of the three have sprouted. Don't think they are going to at this late date. I'll keep you posted on the 5 just planted.

    I love these plants, and the ones I ordered from native wildflowers arrived healthy and happy in their humid little bag. I ordered 2, and got 2 great looking rhizomes and a third that needed some love. I sunk all 3 into some potting soil and set them into a pot on my north facing window sill. I hope they will all grow and propagate this year to fill my garden with its first signs of life this spring. Native wildflowers certainly did their job, and I appreciate them for offering such hard to find things as bloodroot.

    Purchased 10 of these in 2019 and did not have any arise. Love Bloodroot so I am giving it another try. The corms sent looked very healthy and not desiccated at all. Looking forward to success this time around! Have purchased Celadine poppy, Virginia bluebell, wild iris and foamflower which all have done pretty well. Like the ephemeral collection offered by Native Wildflowers.

    I appreciate you providing indigenous plants such as blood root. My plants are in the ground and I'm looking forward to next Spring. The barefoot plants arrived in great condition.
