Sanguinaria canadensis, Bloodroot
A choice Missouri native woodland plant, Bloodroot, Sanguinaria canadensis, bursts forth in early spring with pristine white flowers, and unique lobed leaves. Each fascinating flower emerges wrapped by one leaf. As the flowers mature, the leaves unfurl. Bloodroot’s flowers open up in sun, but close at night. Its ornamental leaves continue to grow and get as large as 9″ across. The plants are low growing topping out at 6-10″ tall. Plants go dormant in mid to late summer. Its sap is bright reddish-orange and once was used by Native Americans for dyes.
At home in the forests, Bloodroot prefers a rich, woodland soil, and shade to part shade. Bloodroot is easy to grow and will naturalize in a good home. Drought tolerant.
