New dicentras from Japan

Posted by Graham Rice on 18 Dec 2009 at 10:10 PM

Dicentra 'Fire Island' - new Japanese dicentra hybrid from Akira Shiozaki. Image: ©Luc KlinkhamerLast month I wrote up a new dicentra from Japan - Dicentra 'Burning Hearts'. I had so many comments, emails, tweets and even a phone call about it that over on my Transatlantic Plantsman blog - recently shortlisted for the Garden Blog of the Year award! - I've discussed all the varieties in this series and others, like Fire Island (seen here, click to enlarge), from the same Japanese breeder.

These look to be genuinely valuable new plants for shade. Just click here to take a look.
