Squirrel Corn (Dicentra canadensis)


Squirrel Corn: Dicentra canadensis, or Squirrel Corn, is a lovely perennial wildflower. TN Nursery recommends this North American native species for customers in the cooler USDA growing zones from the New England region across the Great Lakes, the upper south, and the midwestern areas.


Dicentra canadensis takes its unique common name from the little white flower, which dangles from its stem like a white nugget of corn.


These plants are perfect for a shade garden or cottage garden. Gardeners adore this species for its uncomplicated nature, good looks, and charming little flowers.


Where to Plant Squirrel Corn


Squirrel Corn will treasure a spot in filtered sun or partial shade. Although Dicentra canadensis will tolerate shade, it will not produce as many blossoms.


This perennial prefers de-compacted, fertile soil and about an inch of water per week. However, it does not tolerate standing water, so ensure the planting site provides sufficient quick drainage.


Squirrel Corn plants are lovely planted in these locations:


  •        Mass plantings
  •        Shade garden
  •        Rock garden
  •        Flower beds
  •        Cottage garden
  •        Fairy garden


This plant is relatively self-sufficient if you select the perfect semi-shade location and give it ample water, especially during summertime.


The Casual Charm of Dicentra canadensis


The leaves of the Dicentra canadensis plant are soft, showy, and a lovely dark green, with a fern-like appearance. Leaves may reach six inches long and have a full, lush look.


The plant's stems are burgundy or brown and form a graceful arch as the flowers develop, adding weight for them to bear.


The Squirrel Corn variety grown by TN Nursery has white flowers, and they often have a slight tinge of baby pink accentuating their delicate good looks. They have two petals that meet in the middle to form a heart shape. Some gardeners say this heart-shaped flower looks like a cute pendant dangling from a necklace.
