More Information About Dicentra
Dicentra is one of my favorite groups of woodland perennials. The list of new Dicentra varieties is ever expanding, with new selections being made available almost every year. From the typical clumpers, to the new hybrids, to the climbing members of the genus , most dicentra selections are easy to grow with a long bloom season of delicate-looking flowers.
Dicentra plants feature spectacular flowers in yellow, white, pink, and red. The clump-forming species dicentra spectabilis is a spring ephemeral plant that sprouts in February, flowers from March to May, and then goes dormant and disappears by July. The vining species Dicentra scandens toughs out the summer above ground and produces yellow flowers until autumn frosts arrive. Some dicentra species prefer partial shade and slightly moist soils while others such as Dicentra perrigrina prefer dry sun. Dicentra flowers also attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden. The plants are deer-resistant too. When you are ready to buy dicentra for your garden, check out our online list of dicentra for sale.
