Good morning GTers! Can't believe how quickly my #dicentra has gone from nothing at all to full bloom! This is just one of the plants in my weekly photo #blog which you can see at the following link if you're interested - www.bigemrg.co.uk/blog/latest Have a terrific Thursday everyone! 😀 #bleedingheart

@juliesgarden - Morning Julie! I've found by pruning the flowers back when they're done will stimulate the plant to produce more! So, if you miss them, you may be able to get more! 😀

I’m sure I read somewhere a bleeding heart with a different binomial name. Either an error, or another botanical name change that I’ll never remember. Mine is just about open, a beautiful image x

@Emma915Jones - Thanks Emma! According to Wikipedia they're now called #lamprocapnos with #dicentra being listed as a synonym! Guess I'll have to get used to the name change and update my records! 😀

Morning Ian 🤔 now I let mine die back last year thought they always did this well that's why I read and not to remove foliage until it goes yellow or brown 👌🏻

Good morning GTers! Well look at this! I gave my #dicentra a light trim a few weeks ago, cutting back the yellowing leaves, and generally thinning it out, and it seems to have encouraged a second flush of flowers - albeit smaller than the original flush! Have a good, and hopefully dry day everyone! 😀

Evening GT folks! Have been wondering where my #dicentra had got to but found it nestling amongst my anemones! Was surprised it was starting to form flowers already as it was June before I saw them last year!
