Dicentra spectabilis - is yours up yet?

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 07:55

The one I split in Autumn and put in the ground are just about showing.

I've 3 clumps of it, all only a couple of inches high at most, I find Dicentra grow rapidly so I wouldnt worry too much.

A lot of Azaleas look tired at this time of year. Just wait and soon enough it will flower and produce an abundance of fresh leaves

Evergreen. Jasminum Polyanthum, The smell is absolutely incredible. I would suggest it would suffer at anything below -6 though.

I'll try get a picture of it tomorrow for you so you can see how tough it is.
