Dicentra is such a great spring flower. Yours looks very happy Homebird. Is it only one plant or several?

Crikey, this is out early Hb ... only about 4" of foliage on mine ... you lucky lady!

It's was just one plant originally but has bulked up year on year Klahanie.
It's usually out by May Shirley. I have tried to grow the white ones but they don't do at all well here.

I wonder why that is? I have noticed this year that not one of my Nigella or Poppies have appeared ... another mystery!

That's strange Shirley. Maybe that late frost set them back a lot. Most plants were about 6 weeks later than normal here. I will give up trying to grow the white dicentra, I have lost 3 now, and when I put them in the garden they hardly grew at all. Never mind, you can't have everything...

I've just put a white one in the garden, lost the pink one, hope it fares better than yours.Was very frail, so have had to stake it.Fingers crossred!

Thanks Paul. It covers the rough bit by the yucca nicely...
The really wet summer last year must have done them good Dd. I'd rather have warm dry summers though and short Dicentra....lol
I do hope the white ones grow really well for you Gralew. It's strange you lost the pink one as they are usually quite tough. Mine started to grow in the snow!!!
