Where can I find Bllodwort in Coos County

Asked May 9, 2019, 10:31 AM EDT

Hi, I'm looking for Blodwort to keep the deer out of my backyard garden in Coos Bay, OR. I was told Bloodwort will do that. I'm trying to find out where I can find Bloodwort in Coos County, or nearby.

Thank you for your question. Are you referring to bloodwort? Here is its description: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanguinaria

Yes, I believe that is the pl ant I was referred to that repels our city mice(deer herds) that are unafraid of people.
Is there anyplace in Oregon that sells/ grows the plant as an ornamental?
Or, would I have to mail/special order it from an eastern nursery?

Thank you and have a good morning,

We don't seek out or endorse commercial plant nurseries at Extension, but if you do a web search for this plant and go to "shopping," you can find some for sale. Good luck!
