This is an interesting little herbaceous plant that is plant number 110 identified on Dewberry Lands.  This plant is Bloodroot.  If you look up information about this plant you will see where the name is derived from.  Native Americans in our area used this plant for a dye to color cane baskets a red color.  If you dissect the root (rhizomes) a blood-like sap comes from the root.  It can be poisonous.
