Wow, loving the black parrot! Is that it out, or still in bud? Dicentra is such a beautiful plant isn't it...and yours has the perfect balance of flowers to foliage! I've seen a new one this year with deep red and white flowers. I'm extremely tempted! In fact, it might jump in to my trolley next time the car goes out of control and takes me to the nursery....again! ;)

Thanks Karen! That's it still in bud - once its out you get fantastic deep purple "feathery" flowers. I'll post a pic later if the weather holds and I can get out! I do love the dicentra, it seems to be very late this year but hopefully will mean some interesting combinations! I keep having that problem too, things falling into my trolley at garden centres...awful isn't it... ;)

Yes, and the car just cannot pass one...dreadful!
