Sanguinaria canadensis 'Snow Cone' is a clonal selection of our Eastern US native bloodroot, from iris breeders, Jan Sacks and Marty Schaffer, who selected it as a seedling from their Tennessee form. This little-known and hard-to-find 2016 selection produces 6" tall stalks, starting for us in early March, each topped with 3" wide flowers, each with up to 25 pure white petals...a striking clump in the woodland garden. Sanguinaria canadensis is a spring ephemeral, meaning it will go dormant by late spring.
