Bloodroot ( Sanguinaria) is our only native poppy (papaveraceae), and its closest relative (not surprisingly) is Eomecon in China. Bloodroot is myrmecochorous: it is spread by ants. Bloodroot seeds have a little fruit that attracts ants. The ants take them home and dispose of the seed itself in the colony refuse pile.
