Dutchmas Breeches 3 For $12.99 Description

Dutchman's breeches Dicentra cucullaria

Dutchman's breeches- are a visually pleasing flower that often bloomed in early spring for a short period, usually for just a few weeks.


Native to North America, it is a herbaceous perennial plant that belongs to the Fumariaceae family. In the United States, it is regarded by several names depending on what part of the country you are from.

For instance, it is known as Little Blue Staggers in certain circles because of the plant's ability to produce drunk stumbling cattle when they eat it. This drunken state is due to narcotics and toxic substances in the surrounding poppy-related species; hence, it is a source of the plant's name. You can refer to this disorder as bleeding heart syndrome.

This perennial plant, which produces seed bulbs that resemble rice, is a charming addition to any garden that receives a lot of moisture and shade. It blooms profusely from March to April. Some flowers that vary in color from white to pink, adopting the shape of a pair of pantaloons hung upside down, can be seen gracing their growing environment.

These small white flowers thrive when you group them closely together; hence, increasing their overall appeal. The look of its finely composed leaves gives the impression that it is fern-like. Because its blossoms fade quickly, it is not ideal for you to forage these plants in the wild for culinary purposes. 

Dutchman's breeches Dicentra are adaptable to all sorts of growing conditions

These plants may tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions; however, they will flourish in a mix of damp, rich in organic matter, and well-drained soils to achieve their maximum potential growth. While moisture is vital during the weeks leading up to the plant's brief bloom, it is also helpful to have drier soil after the plant has entered dormancy since this will enable the plant to grow more vigorously.

That one-of-a-kind blend will result in the highest number of growth and blooms. The plant favors an acidic soil mixture, although it may survive in soils with pH values closer to neutral.

They adapt to all sorts of growing conditions as they can even thrive in environments other plants cannot. Most perennials love the flat ground, whereas these plants develop the best on rocky, sloping terrains or hillsides.

They grow roughly 4 to 12 inches high to the top of the erect flower stalks. They are also considered less likely to have diseases or insect problems. 

Following its bloom in the early spring, this plant's stems and leaves alike will fall to the surface, leaving the plant to go into dormancy till the subsequent year.
