Rafflesia heckbotii

A place for pretty plants to gather.

My social blog is a rather decadent vanity project... I always wanted a place where I can post in a semi-professional manner. Hence this blog has been born.

Dicentra eximia ‘Burning Hearts’

All images borrowed from Wikimedia Commons.

Today I’m focusing on a single cultivar of a widely loved garden plant. D. eximia is valued for both its deep cerise flowers and its ferny blue-gray foliage. ‘Burning Hearts’, an award winning cultivar introduced in 2008, offers some of the deepest richest colours ever seen on any Dicentra species and indeed appears almost blood red streaked with burgundy/almost black markings in some images.

Dicentra, along with several over genera were once in their own taxonomic family titled Fumariaceae but are now categorized under Papaveraceae, the poppy family, instead.
