SANGUINARIA CANADENSIS, ZONES 3 TO 9
Bloodroot, a native wildflower, thrives in moist woodlands. This white bloom gets its name from the red liquid that oozes out of the root when it’s cut. In the garden, plant bloodroot in a space where it can naturalize. Pay attention, though! The 2-inch bright white blooms last for only a few days. Why we love it:
It adds a lot of life to a shady space, and it’s super easy to grow.
