  1. Have you ever heard of Bloodroot- Sanguinaria canadensis? Native Americans used it for an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal remedy and make-up. Now scientists think it might even be helpful in skin cancers.

    I understand that it doesn’t grow well from seed; you need roots to propagate. I’d love to grow some, but I think it’s too hot in my area.

  2. My fiance is trying to grow a ground cover in a shady spot in our yard next to the house. He has picked Lilly of the Valley, but it did nothing last year. I mean literally nothing. It didn’t die and it didn’t grow. It was like it was in stasis…lol.
    Would you know what we have done wrong? I’m not so sure on flowers…

      • Lily of the Valley may take a while to get established, especially if the plants were small to begin with. There’s that old saw about perennial plants: the first year they sleep, the second they creep; the third they leap.

        You don’t mention where you’re located and that can make a big difference too.

  3. Thank You for all the tips! I appreciated it. I am located in the St. Louis Wid-West area in the US. I will let my fiance in on the tips. Maybe in about by next year the Lilly of the Valley will have taken off! Thanks Again.
