Dutchman's Breeches

The Dicentra family is best known for Dicentra spectabilis, or Bleeding Hearts, which showy pink blossoms are shaped like hearts with a white tear dropping pendulously from them. Other Dicentra's celebrate similarly visual names, there's "Squirrel Corn" (Dicentra canadensis), and this early woodland bloom known as Dutchman's Breeches.
