Lamprocapnos spectabilis or Dicentra spectablis, definitely Bleeding Heart

6May14 030 (1024x683)I say Dicentra, you say Lamprocapnos,
Why did you change it, it makes me very cross.
Dicentra, Lamprocapnos, Dicentra, Lamprocapnos,
Let’s call the whole thing off.

(apologies to song writers across the world)

  1. “Lamprocapnos”? First I hear of it! Beautiful, though, whatever it’s called, and beautifully photographed.

  2. A lovely verse to help us remember the new name. But who was this man Fukuhara who decided we could no longer call it Dicentra? It is a good thing you didn’t include his name in your song. Goodness knows how you would have fitted his name into the verse without appearing rude.

  3. It’s a shame you were too late to enter for Eurovision this year. I’d have fancied your chances 😉

  4. Beautiful! Mine hasn’t flowered yet, but it is growing nicely and looks very healthy so fingers crossed. Great song writing skills 😉

    I can imagine you singing! (but for your disappointment or delight there are Dicentra species that kept their name 🙂
