The interesting dark purplish black flowers occur in terminal clusters at the end of the flower spike. The Bloodroots (Haemodorum) are related to the Kangaroo Paws (Anigozanthos)
A clumping plant that grows to around 1 metre with a half metre spread, grass-type leaves 60 cm in length.

The Aborigines used the red bulbous root of the plant by roasting and using as a spice, it was also used as a treatment for dysentery.

Endemic to the southwest of Western Australia.

Prefers a light to medium well-drained soil in an open sunny position, drought and frost tender.

Please Note: Although many of the traditional Bush Food and Medicine plants are now commercially produced in various forms, we recommend you research these before using them as any form of food or medicine. Some parts of the plant may not be edible or need preparation before they are safe to eat or use. We do our best to describe their traditional & modern uses. The purchaser is responsible for ensuring they are fit for their intended use.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia, seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoiding the coldest and hottest months. The optimum germination temperature for this species is around 18-22°C.

Pre-treatment of smoke recommended

This genus is responsive to smoke, and although it is not critical for the germination of this species, it is usually beneficial in reducing the number of days to germination and increasing germination rates.Smoke treatments are available by clicking here.

Sow seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix.
Sprinkle a very light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed if required to hold the seed in place. Do not bury the seed deeply.
Place in a warm, shaded, or semi-shaded position. Keep warm & moist, and avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.

Germination generally occurs in around 24-28 days but may take longer depending on the conditions.

*Please note:

  • Please do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.
  • As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet.
  • These growth notes are provided as guidance only and do not guarantee successful germination.
