Growing Sanguinaria (Bloodroot)

Latin Name Pronunciation: san-gwin-air'-ee-ah

Spacing: 12-15in, DEPTH: Level (potted)/1in (bareroot), SUN: Partial-Full Shade

Grow in partial shade or shade in neutral or slightly acid soil enriched with organic matter. Plant the rootstock of bareroot plants horizontally 1in below the surface of the soil. Plants spread slowly in a site they like, eventually forming large colonies. They typically go dormant by mid- to late summer--earlier in dry conditions, later in moisture-retentive soil.
