The multitude of golden black-eyed Susan is setting the Autumn Garden aglow.

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.
