Pink and white

Dutchman's breeches in my deep shade garden:

Dicentra spectabilis var. "Alba"

Laurie has the sunny side, and his "Breeches" are pink:

Now re-named Lamprocapros spectabilis
These are also known as Bleeding Heart; they're a relative of our native woodland Dicentra formosa. Other names include Lady's locket, Lyre flower, and Lady in the Bath.

  1. I hadn't realised dicentra comes in white as well as pink.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
