Mystery Flower ~ Bloodroot

Update ~ Thanks to Theresa and Carol who identified the flower as a bloodroot.

Mom and I went for a walk this afternoon. I found this little flower growing along side the road where I had never seen it before.

I think it may be a wood anemone but I am not sure.  It doesn't quite look like the images when I googled it. 

Can anyone positively identify it for me?

I would like to dig it up and plant it at my house.

Have a good week ya'll.

Righto. That folded green leaf clasping the stem gives it away. Beautiful pictures.

Oh how pretty they are! I wonder if they would grow if you replanted them?

How pretty! Thanks go to Theresa for identifying it! (She is our go to girl, isn't she?) is it something you can or should replant?

How lucky are you to go for a walk with your mum, I miss mine so much. Such a sweet little spring flower Felicia, would look so pretty in your garden.

Beautiful flower blossoms! I wouldn't have known the name of it.

Gunilla Bäck said...

They're gorgeous! I've seen them in the Botanic Garden here as well.

Rebecca said...

I rescued a little blood root from the developer's plow several years back. It lives in my yard now.

Hannah said...

The bloodroot flower is such a crisp white, and I live the wavy edges and texture on the leaves. The flowers don't last long, though, and mine has been overtaken with lots of other plants so I don't see them. I should buy some more tubers.

Stephanie said...

Perfect clear shots!

Gail Dixon said...

Your shots are so pretty! I can see why you'd want to plant these in your garden. Lovely!!

Rose said...

Woods flowers are just soooo beautiful!
