Bloodroot. Naked white flowers on stems to 15cm in early spring are followed by carpets of greyish, lobed, reniform leaves up to 20cm across. Good leafy soil in shade.
An established clump of Sanguinaria canadensis will put on a good show with it's bright white, almost starry, flowers but individually the flowers only last a few days at best. However the foliage is a welcome addition to a shady border and will persist until late summer.
From eastern North America.
