Dicentra spectabilis - is yours up yet?

Posted: 27/04/2015 at 09:55

No snow but still frosty in the shade at 8am this morning. But my dicentra is still well protected by nettles so it will be OK

Hi Brenda. If you can enlarge the pic have a close look at the stems, and their joints. The divided leaf shape is clear as well.

Maybe Sorbus aucuparia, mountain ash. Have you got those around in your area?

Looks like one of the purple cultivars of Sambucus nigra to me. Don't think it's lacy enough for 'Black Lace'

Can anyone identify this plant for me?

Judith's shrub is Sorbaria sorbifolia 'Sem'. An unlikely candidate for turning up unexpectedly. Though I think these have an unhealthy anaemic look as well. 

Leaves totally wrong for sambucus of any sort and growth style wrong for valerian

There are potential growing pints all over the top of cyclamen corms. The top often appears to be concave. Does that help?

Get them in the soil, they don't like to be hanging about out of the soil. Shallow plant, no more than an inch.
