Looking good now
The fat fists of silvery lilac buds on Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' have opened up to release an intense, sugary scent at the mouth of the Winter Garden.

Dicentra spectabilis

Fine stands of bleeding hearts are putting on a spectacular show in the Woodland Garden
In light shade, Dicentra spectabilis is producing its uniquely-shaped blooms in magenta-pink with white droplets, strung singly along pinkish arching stems, as though the laundry has been hung out to dry!

The bleeding hearts have made it onto the Plant Picks a whole month earlier than last year, coaxed into action by the mild winter to spring transition.

Dicentra is in the Fumariaceae family.
