(aka: Dactylicapnos scandens) This Allan Armitage selection (cutting-propagated) of the rare, climbing, yellow-flowered bleeding heart was made for its incredibly floriferous nature. Our Dicentra scandens is a virtual flowering machine, producing thousands of yellow, heart-shaped flowers from April through November. The fast-growing, corydalis-like, grey-green foliage climbs loosely up a trellis, fence, or sleeping neighbor...but unlike neighbors, it's never invasive. Dicentra 'Athens Yellow' ranks high on the "can't live without it" list! Even in northern climates, Dicentra scandens makes a superb, deer-resistant, tender perennial attractive to hummingbirds.
