This is my Sanguinaria-form, in Holland called S.canadensis 'Flore Pleno'. Sometimes called 'Multiplex'.
Is it the same, Mark, as yours? I think I see little differences.

I do think it is the same plant. There was a combination published in 1931 as S. canadensis f. multiplex, but the species is so variable and includes double forms, I don't think the name is recognized officially, thus the plant goes around as 'Multiplex', 'Fora Plena' or 'Flora Pleno".

Here's a web site with good information and some excellent photos:

Lovely plants, though I prefer the singles, or maybe semi-doubles :) Pink would be cool!

I haven't got any yet, will have to watch for seed, I guess Kristl should have it.. I've noticed Richter's H erbs(Ontario) sells plants, not a bad price ...  Or, if you have more to spend, you can buy a bucketload of rootlets!

Cohan, I agree (to your first statement in particular). As I have yhe common white and the multiplax-form, I will be at the lookout for pinks and semi-double forms ;) However, it is not easy to get a bucketload of anything to this country :(

I can't afford the bucketload anyway-- I think they are expecting to sell those large amounts to  professional herbalists...

Here are a few of mine.

1 - doublecross -- from Illinois with two sets of petals always like this.
2  - cutleaf -- my most dissected form from southern GA
3 - pink and white -- note the purple coloration on the pink flowers leaves vs. the white.
4 -- TN wild form
5 -- dwarf -- label is 4 inches, Case mentions this in "Trillium." Mentioned above.
6 -- same pink and white again
7 -- one of my variegated, sadly gone like the other one I found as well

More from this year when I download all the spring images.

They spread a bit - you don't know anybody cleaning up in their garden?
Was out today to take pictures of mine but they're all spent or damaged by slugs >:(

Trond, I don't really know any gardeners in my area growing many interesting things, so no one to beg divisions from...lol I won't be buying the rootlets at 100 for $200! but maybe a few plants- if you buy 3 or more, $4.70 each.... they have North American Hepatica and a Trillium or two, etc for similar prices-- among regular herbs, they have various natives which are used medicinally or for dying etc..

Getting rid of bucketsfull of bloodroot is not a common thing here either.  ;D

I wonder how much of it Richters grows to be able to offer that much? Mind you, maybe those large orders are rare and far between...
