Sanguinaria canadensis ( common name – Bloodroot) is a herbaceous perennial native to eastern North America including southern parts of Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces. Very vivacious and stick their heads up when the snow is gone.
This is a woodland plant and seems to be quite tolerant to different soils and moisture conditions. It grows well anywhere from deep shade to part sun. Blooms from April to early in May and lasts as long as 2 weeks. Bloom height is around 5″, and foliage may grow to 12″ to 18″ after the bloom finishes.
