Dutchman Breeches -  Dicentra Cucullaria


Dutchman’s Breeches is a whimsical herbaceous perennial with gorgeous white blooms that resemble an upside down sailor’s pants. In winter, this rabbit and clay tolerant plant will grow best in dry soil. Dutchman’s Breeches is perfect for a wildflower garden needing a delicate bloom to complement deeper shades in early spring. It occurs naturally in valleys and along streams. Its foliage is similar to a common fern. It is closely related to bleeding heart, is mildly aphid susceptible, and highly resistant to disease.
