That's nice to see one that flowers later in the year. Must look out for this one.

Thanks for your comments guys.
HB, this too is labelled as flowering from Spring to Autumn - I only bought this a couple of weeks ago and is labelled as perennial but on another website it is listed as annual. I will find out next year!!

It's a nursery about 10 minutes drive from me HB, independently owned. Famous for their paeonies.

That's lucky for you living so close, they have some lovely plants, especially the paeony's. The postage is rather high just for one plant so I have kept it in my favourites and will order the Dicentra along with other plants later on. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I will be looking through their plants again tonight.

Hi Scottish, I bought this Dicentra (King of Hearts) a few weeks ago, for the new front garden...and within a week its was falling apart...I dug it up, searched all the root ball, found nothing nasty...so I may have just picked a weak plant, that looked healthy at the time...
I just thought I would mention it, so you can keep an eye on yours...

It is looking good in the photo...:o))

Hi Crissue....been in the ground for 3 weeks now. I bought 3 of them but will keep an eye open. Thanks for the warning.
