Bloodroot (Flower)

Photo of a bloodroot flower, closeup of center showing yellow stamens

Bloodroot blooms March–April. The flowers open before or just as the leaves start to unfurl. The flowers have 8–16 white petals of uneven size and length, and many yellow stamens. The flower is about 1¼ inch across. Because the petals are of uneven length, one often finds “square” flowers. Each flower lasts only one or two days.
