Bright white with a yellow center, this native spring wildflower blooms in undisturbed woodlands, flood plains, and slopes near water. The reddish sap that exudes from the plant, mainly the root, gives its name and historical purpose as paint/dye. The blossoms appear for a short time in early spring, calling early-flying pollinators, and later the leaves unfurl with their unique shape. Grows in clumps from a branching, shallow orange-colored rhizome.
While the flower pollen will attract many native bees and flies, ants are attracted to a sweet fleshy appendage on the seed and help distribute the plant. Bloodroot goes dormant by mid-summer. Historically used by Native Americans to heal respiratory and some skin ailments.

All orders will be shipped in 3-10 business days via USPS Priority mail, UPS or FedEx, depending on the size of the item and whether framing was desired. For medium to larger works, and if crating is needed to safely ship, it will be UPS or FedEX. USPS can ship larger works but it is a lot more expensive!
If I anticipate framing will take longer for any reason, I will reach out and let you know! You will receive a tracking number via email once the work has shipped.
