Dutchman's Breeches

Dicentra cucullaria

Description:

Dutchman’s Breeches blooms in the early spring from March to April. Flowers are white to pink and resemble a pair of pantaloons hanging upside down. The flowers wilt almost immediately upon picking so they should not be collected in the wild. The one or more finely compound leaves make the plant appear fern-like.

Habitat:

Typically occurs on forest floors, rocky woods, slopes, ledges, valleys, ravines and along streams
