Sanguinaria canadensis

The Canadian Blood Root is a stunning if ephemeral woodlander from “you guessed it” as well as the USA.

The single poppy flowers last only a few days but what a joy they are. The green scalloped leaves are charming and will keep you entertained for months afterward and as it doesn’t take up all that much space I for one think it is well worth it.

The plant will only ever get to about 20cms. tall and make a clump of 60 cos or so within a reasonable time so plant it with your ferns, Hostas, Merry bells et. al. and enjoy.

I have newly potted rhizomes in 15 cm pots at $20DSC_0091
