Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I just read about blood root this morning on the GardenDesign.com website. Was wondering if I should consider it for my shade garden. How long have you had it?

The flower is really attractive. There's zero info in the database. Is this a succulent? Its the stem under the flower that makes me think so, and the way they're connected. I don't do succulents which is why I'm really ignorant about them. But this one, hummmmmmm...
Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

I have one that is lovely when in bloom but such a short bloom time.
It does seem to spread around a bit , nothing fast. Slugs don't eat it.
This morning

Hi Connie, it likes acidic soil, partial to full shade, reproduces by seed and root division.
Not a succulent.

Blood Root likes shade, and at least mildly acidic soil. Seeds are pulpy and soft and do not store. Transplant your seed direct to shallow pans and over-winter outdoors.

If you are starting them remote from their growing site, use root divisions early in the spring.

Looks orchid-y to me. Big flower little leaves,
free for them in need:

I have to grow my bloodroot in containers, the voles eat the tubers at my house.
At another garden, the property owner has a bad habit of walking around with a round-up sprayer.... lost several patches of bloodroot... my working theory is that in spraying the chickweed, dormant bloodroot is being killed.
