Bloodroot...the flowers of this striking wildflower are white with a bold yellow center and have eight to ten long, narrow petals. The petals open at dawn and close at nightfall. The large round leaves also open flat in the sun and curl around the stems at night. The Bloodroot flower takes its name from the red juice the plant produces. The roots of the plant are a vivid red. Sanguinaria is Latin for bleeding. Men of the Ponca, a Native American tribe, would cover their hands with the red juice before visiting a love interest. They believed if they then held the hand of the woman they wanted to marry, she would say yes.
