This native member of the poppy family can be found in woodlands from North Dakota south to Florida. The easy-to-grow bloodroot is certainly one of the stars of early spring woodland gardens. Each clump can produce dozens of 6" flower stalks that are topped with 1" white daisies in early April (NC). The flowers are followed by rounded green leaves with lobes on one side, resembling the smile of the protagonist characters from the movie Deliverance. Bloodroots are best sited in a slightly moist woodland setting and should be divided every three years to prevent clump decline...our offerings are flowering-sized plants.
