Incredibly difficult to source and very desirable. Canadian bloodroot. Shining double white flowers nestling in greyish lobed leaves. April-May. Humus-rich soil is required. Sun or partial shade. height 15X45cm. Will disappear underground early on in the season but can be divided to propagate. Very tough plant. Grows at the edge of the gravel seating area. Look out for the pure white flowers in late spring. Dies back late summer.
