Dicentra cucullaria


This ephemeral wildflower is a beautiful sign of spring, featuring a striking yellow and white hanging flower that resembles a pair of Dutchman's Breeches hanging upside down. Blooming early in the season between April and May, it attracts bees to its shady, moist, well-drained growing site. While this plant grows best in woodlands with humus enrichment, it can also thrive in other shaded environments with some spring sun. 


It grows up to 30cm tall and has fern-like foliage that begins to yellow by June, becoming fully dormant by mid-summer. It is important to note that this wildflower is poisonous and can cause skin irritation if touched. However, its showy flowers and attractive foliage make it a welcome addition to any garden or natural setting.
