Bloodroot with No Blooms
Answered by: Inge Poot
Question from: Marie
Posted on: May 21, 2010

I purchased a Bloodroot plant last year from Richters. There are a few extra leaves coming up this year in the shade, but there are no flowers with any of the leaves that have sprouted. Any insight into what might have happened and what I can do to have blooms next year?

Bloodroot do not like transplanting and may not bloom well for about two years after doing so. Give them time. Be sure the plants are planted in deciduous tree shade, because the leaves need the early spring sunshine to make food for next year’s growth and flowers.
