Sanguinaria canadensis (Bloodroot) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because germination can be very slow and irregular, and they require patience. It is important that they do not dry out after collection, so I have mixed the seeds with a small amount of moist vermiculite, and they have been stored moist at room temperature since June 6, 2022. Sow them as soon as you receive them, in outdoor pots or directly in a nursery bed, and cover with a thin layer of soil or grit. Seedlings may appear the following spring or not until the year after. Obviously, bloodroot is not easy from seed, but it’s worth the challenge if you want to add it to your garden and don’t have access to starter plants (which are also very difficult to find).

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) is one of the earliest native woodland wildflowers, gracing the spring garden with broad, distinctively lobed leaves and pristine white-petaled flowers to about 6 inches tall. The bloom season is short but a highlight of the early show. The leaves die back to the ground in midsummer. Partial to full shade; moist, humus-rich soil is ideal. Reportedly hardy in Zones 3 to 8.

2022-collected seeds sold out. I hope to collect again in early June 2023. Each packet contains at least 15 seeds, along with a small amount of moist vermiculite (see the Germination Information section). Provenance is Milford Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
