Description

Squirrel Corn, or dicentra Canadensis, originates from eastern North America.

This herbaceous perennial plant grows between 6" to 12" tall, thrives in richly moist and acidic soil, and prefers dappled shade throughout the day. 

The Squirrel Corn lives in deciduous woodlands attracting wildlife such as chipmunks, songbirds, bees, and butterflies. This lovely wildflower blooms in the spring between April and May and grows dormant as summer approaches. During the blooming period, which lasts for about two to three weeks, the tiny flowers bloom in clusters of four to eight, rising from pale red stalks. The blooms develop into white or pale pink heart-shaped flowers that hang from 6-8 inch arching stems. These dainty hearts carry a light, sweet fragrance half an inch long in size.

  Underneath the white heart clusters, the splay of leaves provides a lacy background, with each blade finely divided into three leaflets. Pale and waxy underneath, the smooth basal leaves grow 5" to 9" long and 3" to 7" inches wide and spread out parallel with the ground. 

The lacy fingers of this foliage remain through mid-summer and create a complex arrangement that interests the eye even after the flowers fade away. 

  Once the blooming period is over, fertile flowers become drooping capsules, egg-shaped, and flatter. After dividing in two, each capsule releases several seeds. Because the plant carries both nectar and pollen, queen bumblebees usually cross-pollinate the flowers. Ants also distribute seeds because of the presence of elaiosomes.

  Squirrel Corn adds a showy element and is easy to maintain, making it the perfect complement for a spring garden.
