Description for Bloodroot
Bloodroot is an early spring wildflower that grows in woodlands of the eastern United States and Canada.
The stout rhizome oozes with a bright red latex when cut, giving the plant its common name.
The root and rhizome are collected in the fall for medicinal use.
Planting and care
Plants can be started indoors from seed or seed can be directly sown into the ground, but the rhizome divisions allow for a faster harvestable root.
Caring for Bloodroot
- To keep the plant from entering dormancy, you should keep the soil moist. In fact, regular watering, twice a week, will allow the leaves to remain throughout much of summer. This can be reduced in fall and winter so it can go dormant. You can begin feeding your plants with a balanced fertilizer once they have reached their second year of growth. When this plant is happy in its location, it will colonize and provide many years of flowering.
