    Overview

    The Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) from the Canadian woodlands thrives in a well-drained rich acid loamy soil. Creamy-white flowers emerge from between the folds of the leaves, which later open out flat to show their handsome deep lobes of gray-green.

    The leaves die down in summer, and this is the moment to transplant if desired. A double form, Sanguinaria canadensis “Flore Pleno”, is commonly grown in gardens, its tightly packed cup-shaped petals very freely carried among the unusual leaves.
