Rising 6-10" tall, this rhizomatous, native wildflower is often seen in large colonies on the shaded forest floor. The white flowers which bloom in the Spring are short-lived, and only open in the sun. For this reason, this perennial is primarily grown for it's attractive foliage. It's common name of 'Bloodroot' is in reference to the bright reddish-orange sap secreted from all parts of the plant when damaged or cut. This sap was once used by Native American Indians for dye. All parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested.
