First report of seed dispersal by ants in Dicentra

Grow more plants that slugs dislike, such as achillea, aquilegia, aster, geum, verbascum, Dicentra

In nature, the bleeding heart Dicentra
chrysantha springs up freely after fire scorches dry, scrubby chaparral landscape.
The beds around the seat are bursting with pretty primulas, dicentra

Pretty in pink: Dicentra

SPECTABILIS (BLEEDING HEART) These pretty, delicate-looking cottage garden perennials grow to around 1m (3ft) and produce beautiful pink and white heartshaped flowers which last for six to eight weeks in late spring.
She says her "bleeding heart" sculpture - entitled Dicentra
- reflects the fact her "heart aches when I see the silted up lake choked with debris and broken branches".
