Thank you for sharing your success in container gardening with natives. I did that for many years before we had land of our own. Most things did very well for me, but, I too, lost some.

As for the bloodroot, I recall one year I collected a lot of seed from my small patch, stored it, then went to winter sow it--it was only then that I looked at the germination requirements; the seed cannot be stored--it has to be sown immediately.
