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, and apparently they need a cold-moist period, then a warm-moist period, and then a cold-moist period to germinate. For those reasons, I have mixed the seeds with a small amount of moist vermiculite, and they have been moist-cold stored since June 10, 2021. They will be ready to start a 60- to 90-day warm period around mid-August; then they need another cold-moist period to encourage sprouting. 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.

I collected these seeds in late May and early June of 2021. Each packet will contain at least 15 seeds, along with a small amount of moist vermiculite (see the Germination Information section). There will likely be only 2 or 3 packets available this year. Provenance is Milford Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
