A photographic collection and brief reference to help identify Wildflowers found in New York
The Genus name is based on the Latin word sanguis meaning blood. Broken stems ooze a red/orange sap that's poisonous.
Personally I love the way the leaf clasps the flower stalkFound: Moist rich wood and brush edges - Look for the plant where it gets late spring and summer shade and the ground does not get bone dry.
The red sap is poisonous as is the rest of the plant
