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.
2021-collected seeds sold out. I plan to collect again in late May to early June of 2022. 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.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
