(Bloodroot - 03) The bloodroot has a solitary leaf and is relatively easy to spot in the early spring. Once we find the flower and locate the bloodroot leaf, we try to look at it once a day until blooming stops. This one does not appear to have had a flower, or it was picked before it matured. Most of the bloodroot leaves we have observed have been about 3 inches across and very close to the ground; however, the literature says that they can grow as tall as 12 inches.
