"Bloodroot" A mysterious, beautiful plant native to North America's woodlands. Erupting from the earth in April or May, the flowers and foliage appear simultaneously. Pale pinkish-white buds thrust from the center of rolled leaves on reddish stems opening into 2 inch anemone - like blooms of pure white with lemon-yellow stamens. Ornamental glaucous green foliage is strikingly lobed and deeply veined, remaining attractive well into summer. Roots and stems carry translucent orange-red sap; hence, the name bloodroot. It demands a moist, rich soil with plenty of leaf mold, and partial shade.
