Caption: This White version of Dicentra is also known as Lady's in the Bath, remove a flower invert pinch each lobe between thumb and forefinger and rotate outwards and the Lady stands up in the bath. Takes a leap of imagination but that's that.

Okay....NOW I found another one native to eastern North America called "Wild Bleeding Heart", "Fringed Bleeding Heart" or "Turkey corn"!

This is fun!! I did some hunting online and find they're also called "Dutchman's breeches"
and "Lyre flowers", and are native to Siberia, northern China, Korea and Japan. But there's
also another species "Dicentra canadensis, or Squirrel Corn" that the white flower is a little
more elongated but same shape, and native to North America!

I was just told by a friend that over in Japan they're called Fish flowers because they look like a fish on a line!! Interesting! Makes me wonder what other names there are for them around the world?? :D

Isn't it interesting how different regions have such varied names for the same flowers? Here in the States they're called Bleeding Hearts, especially the pink ones. :-) Here's a seed catalog listing for both colors: rts?p=0834160&CAPCID=30145092419&cadevice=c&gclid= CNODkY-Jgr4CFQ5gMgodXDgAPQ&CA_6C15C=1226053916

Very nice Peter, I haven't seen the white version of this Dicentra and certainly haven't heard of it's other name and the story behind it, ! I shall have to visit my garden centre now to see if this works and buy it as it's so pretty!!

About Cowgazer


I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
