Last year I found a specimen (actually a small group) of Sanguinaria with larger leaves than typical. It was already with seeds and was offered as: Sanguinaria canadensis – large leaf form. I promised I would have pictures with flowers this spring.

Here they are and congratulations to those who bought seeds last year! There is more to it than the big leaves: the buds show up in a nice dusky pink colour, which then fades when the flowers open. Beautiful.

      Thank you Julie. In Sanguinaria I like mostly the way the leaves are ‘protecting’ the flower bud when emerging :) Sometimes I wish they would remain just like that.
