Description

Bloodroot is a spring ephemeral native to the deciduous forests of Eastern North America. The large white flowers that erupt in early spring are captivating. Equally intriguing are the rhizomes. They are bright orange red and exude a reddish sap, which explains the name "bloodroot". Handle the rhizomes with caution.

We do not recommend using this plant medicinally, but it does have a fascinating and controversial history of use in western herbal medicine.
