The bloodroot is also in bloom but they don't last long and are easily de-petalled by wind. The leaves will clasp the stem and slowly unfurl to reveal large saucer shaped but deeply scalloped leaves. During mid summer dry periods it will start to yellow and can go dormant, so mulching will help conserve moisture. The seeds of Bloodroot are dispersed by ants, so I have a few new clumps every year. They do all the work of transplanting for me. How nice is that.
