Leucojum vernum

Sanguinaria canadensis ‘Flore Pleno’The majestic double-flowered bloodroot. Granted, this is a truly ephemeral flower, but when in bloom it is without a doubt the star of the garden and the envy of everyone who sees it. Landlocked water lilies of the purest white emerge from within beautifully wrapped gray-green leaves for a week or more of pure rapture. All forms of this northeast native are said to grow best in shade or partial shade in gravelly, moist ground that is high in organic matter, yet we find this plant amenable to even quite sunny situations if the soil is well prepared and well mulched too. The rhizome should be planted horizontally and just below the soil surface.
