5 Blood­root

Birds & Blooms - - Top 10 -

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.
