Description

Flowers: April-May.  Plant in part shade or woodland.  HxS  15x30cm

The fleshy underground stems on Blood Root produce white, poppy-like flowers during early spring, just as the blue-grey leaves begin to unfurl.  The flowers are very ephemeral.  The leaves persist through to summer, but if the summer is hot will go dormant in August.  Best grown in a rich moist soil in shade.  The common name comes from the sap colour when the root is cut.  The sap is prized as it is an alkaloid.  Pest and disease resistant and grown organically in peat free compost.

Care & Maintenance.

None required. Clear any old foliage or leaves in late winter to allow the new flowers through. May go dormant in mid-summer.
