Blood Root (Sanguinaria canadensis) Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) is a flowering plant native to North America. This perennial herb belongs to the poppy family. The plant gets its name from the reddish-orange sap in its roots, which Native Americans traditionally used as a dye and for medicinal purposes. Bloodroot has several traditional uses, including as an emetic, as a treatment for coughs and respiratory ailments, and as a topical treatment for skin conditions such as warts and skin tags. However, it should be noted that using bloodroot is not supported by modern medical research, and the plant can be toxic if ingested or misused. Bloodroot is also a popular ornamental plant, prized for its early spring blooms and attractive foliage. It is often used in woodland gardens or naturalized areas and can be grown in various soil types and light conditions. However, it should be planted with shade because it thrives in partial sun. Blood Root: Sanguinaria canadensis, or bloodroot, is a North American native perennial species named for its most intriguing characteristic. When someone cuts into this plant, the root system will leak a crimson fluid that resembles blood. Early North Carolina and Virginia settlers first noted this plant as a species that the Indigenous people of the east coast relied on, using the plant's "blood" as a dye for clothing, body paint, and decorative applications. Other common names for this plant include the following: Bloodwort Bloodroot (a one-word variation) Red puccoon Canadia puccoon Black paste This plant flourishes in the semi-shade; it can tolerate a full-shade spot in the garden, although it may produce fewer blossoms. Sanguinaria canadensis Is Easy to Love Sanguinaria canadensis grows in the most moderate growing zones in the United States, from New England to the mid-south and west across the mid-west prairies. In nature, bloodroot grows in clearings where sunshine dapples the forest floor. It thrives in rich organic matter.

Wild Plum Tree$23.99
WIld Plum Tree Prunus Americana Wild Plum Tree: Prunus americana, also known as the American plum tree, is a native tree that flourishes in most USDA growing zones. Its footprint stretches across the United States from the Canadian border to the south. Historically, Native American indigenous people, including the people of the Cheyenne and Navajo nations, cultivated this tree for nourishment and used the branches in ceremonies. That dual purpose rings true still today. While some plum tree species are ornamental with fruit that's best left to the birds, the American plum tree pulls double duty. Indeed, it's both a breathtaking decorative tree and the bearer of delicious, edible plums. The Immense Beauty of the the Wild Plum Tree The wild plum tree is a smaller, deciduous tree that grows to a maximum height of just over twenty feet. Its branches sweep out from a single trunk, and it has a gracefully branching crown that spreads about fifteen feet wide. The angelic white flowers have five pleasingly rounded petals that usually grow in clusters. When in full bloom, the American plum tree appears as though a blanket of snow draped itself over the branches. The blossoms last several days to a week and then give way to the fruit. The fruit tastes slightly tart and is refreshing on the tongue. Fruits can be mauve, red, or purple. The fruit is compact and juicy. You can use it to make preserves, wine, jams, or pastries.

They love to have plenty of water, but they do not prefer standing water for an extended time. Amending the soil with natural compost will help you grow a hardy, resilient plum tree. Occasional pruning of any suckers that develop will train your American plum into a stately, taller shape. However, if you want a bushier appearance, you can skip the trimming. There is no right or wrong answer--it's all about the look you want to achieve.

Red Crepe Myrtle$23.99

The species is super easygoing, requiring little help from you once established. Give your sapling some fertilizer and a nice sunny spot, water it every few days, and watch it grow! Many people mistake the red crepe myrtle for a tree. However, it is a deciduous shrub, despite its twenty to thirty-foot mature height. America loves the red crepe myrtle! Although it's not a North American native species, it thrives in the warmer USDA growing zones, especially in the southeastern states. The red crepe myrtle is cold-hardy and heat-hardy, which may explain its prevalence in the upper south, with freezing temperatures in the winter and blistering summers. It's also resistant to pest damage, disease, and mildew. The Red Crepe Myrtle Is a Real Showstopper The eye-popping shade of vibrant red appears across the south during the peak summertime heat. That's when enormous clusters of dainty red florets open up, creating the illusion of a single, vast flower. When left alone, the red crepe myrtle has multiple upright branches that grow into an elegant, shrub-like shape. However, some gardeners will prune it during its first few seasons to encourage it to grow straight and tall to appear like a tree. The medium-hue green leaves are smallish, around two inches long, glossy, and oval. They are bountiful and create a lush, green canopy to provide a break from the summer sun. The bark is light in color with a slightly rough texture. It is not entirely smooth, nor is it rough. The bark renews yearly, sloughing away in the late summer and exposing a fresh layer. Those stunning red crepe myrtle flowers become a blessing for birds: one-inch or smaller brown pods open to release many seeds. Red Crepe Myrtle Is Attractive to Insects and Feathered Friends Pollinators find the vivid red blossoms highly attractive. You will likely witness pollinator insects--bees, moths, dragonflies, and butterflies--enjoying the nectar of your red crepe myrtle. After the worms and insects retire for the winter, birds will seek out your red crepe myrtle, cracking open those pods to enjoy much-needed sustenance.
