Artist's Description

Here’s another gorgeous wildflower that is beginning to bloom in the north Georgia mountains. These blood root, or Sanguinaria canadensis, plants have a large leaf at their base that unfolds after the flower has bloomed and which in this case is covered by the winter carpet of leaves. The thick red stems and roots were used by native americans for pigments and medicinal purposes. Bloodroot are frequently found in early spring growing in moist woods and banks or near streams throughout the eastern United States and Canada. They are not a rare species but are rarely seen in cleared, or disturbed, areas.

I took this photograph along Andrew Creek in the Chattahoochee National Forest in White County, GA.
