what’s in bloom: Bloodroot (Sanguineria)
April 8, 2011: A true native of our Midwestern woodlands, and a gem of a wildflower! Not the most common of natives either. The blooms last for only a few days, later followed by a beautiful leaf. Said to contain medicinal qualities. Will multiply, seed spread by insects. Blood- like sap often used by early Americans as dyes and more.
