Dutchman's Breeches

Dicentra cucullaria


Dutchman's breeches is a low, delicate herb, with slender leafstalks and flowerstalks, both rising from an underground, scaly bulb. Its lacy leaves are 3-parted and finely divided. The flowerstalks are 5 to 10 inches long and bear several nodding blossoms 1/2 to 3/4 inch long. The blossoms are odorless, white, and flattened; their peculiar shape suggests the common name of the plant. Seeds are produced in small spindle-shaped pods.
