Description

Bloodroot plants are prized by gardeners for their large showy white flowers, which are produced very early in the gardening season. Some cultivars have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Bloodroot grows from 20 to 50 cm (7.9 to 19.7 in) tall. It has one large basal leaf, up to 12 cm (4.7 in) across, with five to nine lobes. The leaves and flowers sprout from a reddish rhizome with bright orange sap that grows at or slightly below the soil surface. The rhizomes grow longer each year, and branch to form colonies. Plants start to bloom before the foliage unfolds in early spring. After blooming the leaves expand to their full size and go summer dormant in mid to late summer.

The flowers bloom from March to May depending on the region and weather. They have 8-12 delicate white petals and yellow stamens.

Bloodroot plants produce toxins, and therefor is recommended as an ornamental plant only. Bloodroot on the skin may destroy tissue and lead to the formation of a large scab, called an eschar. The use of gloves when handling is recommended.

Type: Hardy perennial

Location: Part or full shade

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Seeds per pack: 5

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Availability: If these seeds are showing out of stock, we strongly recommend joining our wait list, as these seeds have a very shorty viability window, and this helps ensure you get the freshest seeds possible! If they are available, they will only be available for a limited time.

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. These seeds require a period of cold. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 8-10 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
