Woodland plant identfication

Asked May 16, 2019, 1:19 PM EDT

I’m seeing this plant more prominent in my woods this year. I’m curious what it is? It’s pretty as a ground cover. (See pic below) Rick Swanson

Thanks for contacting us. Your plant appears to be bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), a native to the area. It is a spring ephemeral.

Thank you for the prompt response. I will keep my fingers crossed they will produce flowers.

Hello again, Rick,

Bloodroot usually flowers from mid-April into May, so you may have missed them. But keep watch next year!
