Sanguinaria canadensis

Yes, the common name for our beloved Sanguinaria canadensis is "Bloodroot". This makes perfect sense as a break in the surface of the plant, especially the roots, reveals a reddish, bloodlike sap. The plant was once used as a dye and for an herbal remedy by early Native Americans. Sanguinaria canadensis is native to every state in the US and to every province of Canada east of the Rockies. Consequently, it's considered hardy down to Zone 3.

And what an easy plant to grow! It's best grown in moist, humusy, well-drained soils in part to full shade. It will also do fine with some sun, and seems to grow as well in drier soils. The multiple, pure white blooms atop 6" - 12" plants will grace your garden in early Spring and after a couple of years, you'll have a colony of self sown seedlings around a plant that has grown into a large clump.

The genus Sanguinaria is a member of the Papaveraceae (Poppy) family and is a close relative of plants in the genera Macleaya, Papaver, Meconopsis, Stylophorum, Chelidonium etc.

By the way, Sanguinaria canadensis is 100 % deerproof.

I've been building a good stock of plants to share with you and now is the PERFECT time to plant them.

What you'll receive are 5 year old bareroot rhizomes that have flowered for the last 2 years. They're ready to plant for a spectacular bloom next Spring. They'll arrive on your doorstep with their roots wrapped in long fibered, unmilled sphagnum moss. This biodegradable material is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and a very useful material.

The prices shown below include FREE SHIPPING on bareroot plants out of their 2" pots. If you would like to receive the plants undisturbed, in their pots, please add .95¢ per plant to cover the extra cost of shipping soil and pots.
