Sanguinaria canadensis
Bloodroot

Each specimen of Bloodroot is a little different with the pattern of lobes and crenations that adorn its medium-green orbicular foliage. The foliage emerges gray-green and clasping together at groundlevel, then unfolds and rises at about the time that that the flowers are dropping their petals. With adequate moisture, the foliage may last into mid-Summer, but it usually senesces by then.
