Tag Archives: Bloodroot

spring ephemeral

this past weekend we made it down to the metropark.  it was sunny and brisk.  the bloodroot that i looked for three weeks ago was finally blooming.  a single glorious flower cloaked by a single leaf.  the bloodroot has something in common with daylilies too.  the petal count can be variable, anywhere from 8 to 12 petals.  dare i go with just the bloodroot ?  i dare…  after all this plant dares to get by with a single leaf.
