Bloodroot - lots of folklore and medicinal uses, but don't harvest due to dwindling plant population.  Gorgeous spring wildflower.

Bleeding heart (Dicentra spectabilis)  This stunning and unusual flower is found wild in shady hollows and forests in Japan and Siberia, making it one hardy beauty in Northern gardens. The wild relatives in my neck of the woods are called Dutchman’s breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) and Squirrel-corn (Dicentra canadensis). They are all part of the poppy family, which is perhaps why I have never been tempted to even sample one of the flowers.
