Blood Root: Sanguinaria canadensis, or blood root, 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:
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 grows in the most moderate growing zones in the United States, from New England to the mid-south and west across the prairies of the mid-west.
In nature, bloodroot grows in clearings where sunshine dapples the forest floor. It thrives in rich organic matter.
It is an easy-to-please plant if you replicate its preferred conditions: semi-shade, enriched woody soil, and moderate moisture. It is disease-resistant, drought-tolerant, and resilient.
Each bloodroot plant bears five to nine lobed leaves with well-defined, rounded teeth. The leaves are relatively small, usually about four to six inches long.
The flowers bloom in the early spring. Each blossom has eight to twelve gossamer, pure white petals. Like the leaves, the flowers are petite, only three inches across at the most. The flower centers are a sunny yellow.
Despite the small size of this lovely plant, the early season color makes it well worth including in a shade garden.
TN Nursery suggests the blood root plant for anyone who wants early-season blossoms and lovely greenery requiring almost no care. Order yours today.
