“Short, broad-leafed red flower with long roots, found near water sources. Leaves are edible. Appears to have restorative properties, but is usually irradiated, so continued consumption not recommended.”— Senior Scribe Neriah, Botany terminal - The Prydwen
A red, semi-aquatic cluster of leaves found on bloodleaf plants in lakes, rivers, and other bodies of water. The plants have long roots alongside the broad-leafed red flowers, appearing commonly in groups of up to ten in the northern Commonwealth. A research report conducted by the Brotherhood of Steel advises to avoid consumption due to radiation, despite the leaves being edible with possible regenerative effects.
There are about 24 along the banks of the circular stream and within the knoll it encircles, southwest of Recon bunker Theta and northeast of Lake Quannapowitt. To find some of them continue either southwest to Lake Quannapowitt and along the patchy riverbed southeast of Recon bunker Theta.
There are 10 along the stream north-northeast of Sanctuary Hills. Those almost directly between Vault 111 and the town do not respawn.
