A relative gave me bloodroot about forty years ago and I put it next to the peony. It never did much and about ten years ago showed up under the chunk concrete wall. Last summer, an animal burrowed there and made a big mound of dirt over the bloodroot. I took some of the soil and put it in hard places and in one something new did show up, but not bloodroot. The bloodroot is coming thru, some in full bloom some still pushing thru.
