Dicentra flowering time
Dicentra is an early flowering perennial with delicate and easy to recognise flowers that bloom on slender stems. Come spring time, this plant is in full bloom. It is also one of the first plants to emerge after the winter season has ended and has beautiful feathered leaves. The flowers are usually pink & white or all white. During flowering, the plant needs to be watered well to assure a long flowering time. You can combine this beautiful perennial plant with primula, Columbine or spring bulbs like snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils. If you love container gardening, why not plant Dicentra in pots and containers? Tip: Choose a large pot or container and plant Dicentra together with summer flowering bulbs for an extra-long flowering display. They will look stunning on your balcony, terrace or garden table.
