a poor speciman

The dicentra, aka bleeding hearts, in the back garden, has only produced this little flower stalk this spring. It's maybe a sign of the times.
It still makes for a lovely image.

My Dicentra is exactly the same this year! How strange is that?

It is a bit creepy I admit. A fellow photographer from our U3A group emailed me a shot of his dicentra with just ONE flower on a stalk.....

It still looks beautiful. Maybe it is a late developer and more will appear soon.

Now you mention it ours isn’t as bushy as usual! I do love this plant though. Another name for them is “ Dutchman’s trousers”.
