Bloodroot is one of those amazing spring flowers, they aren’t there, aren’t there, and then overnight there they are in all their glory. The flowers of the bloodroot are incredibly fragile, the slightest touch will cause the petals to fall. They are also, however, one of the truest White flowers out there. Like some other flowers, such as iris or trillium, the cells in the petals are very reflective, so a large clump can be almost blindingly bright in the sun. We have one large clump (about two dozen flowers this year) and several smaller clumps elsewhere, on the theory that having them all in spot is hazardous.
