Lamprocapnos spectabilis/Bleeding Heart
Monday, 02 Apr 12 Overcast 14°C / 57°F
I like it. A lot. :)
I don’t really think words will do it justice but I will have a go… I love the way that I bought a bag of roots from the £ shop a few months ago and it grew bigger every day to be blooming in several soft pink sprays now. There’s just nothing like it, and it’s one of those spectacular blooms that allows an English country (okay, city) gardener to say “you can keep your orchids and trumpet vines”.
They’re so beautiful, and I know I’ll miss them for the year when they’re gone. ):
Sometimes I think that the less a flower looks like a flower, the more I like it…
Also, to clarify to other growers out there the nomenclature: It is not “Dicentra spectabilis” any more, but a more complicated Latin name we now have to remember.
1: Lamprocapnos spectabilis: bleeding heart.
2: Bleeding heart chronological mosaic
3: Ornithogalum dubium
4: Drosera capensis seedlings! These make me so happy.
5: Production at work; a ****load of marigolds for an upcoming plant sale. It’s great mass pricking out experience! At the end of nursery days I always feel so dexterous and efficient.
