Sanguinaria canadensis 'Venus' has been roaming around the horticultural world for several years under the invalid name 'Roseum'. Our plants trace back to our friend Hans Hansen, who remembers getting them from the now-defunct Collectors Nursery, although they don't appear on their old websites. Regardless, now with a valid name, thanks to Joe Pye Weed Gardens, we are pleased to share this special form of our native woodland-loving bloodroot, whose early spring flowers emerge pink in bud, and open with pink exterior petals and a white interior. Expect an 8" tall x 10" wide clump of lobed green leaves, which after flowering goes dormant for the summer months.
