Looking good now
Through the Woodland and on the Systematic Beds, hoops of orange and yellow crown imperial bells sporting a tuft of bright green leaves are standing in joyful crowds.

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.
