how about this one? Layman's names o.k., Using scientific's will be quite challenging....
Dicentra spectabilis 'Alba' ??? White bleeding heart
I've never seen a bleeding heart that color, how pretty!
Nope, not a bleeding heart or a spectabilis.
The rootstock bears numerous small tubers resembling grains of yellow corn....
Looks like Dicentra Exima, possibly 'Boothman's Variety.'
Gmom. except for its flower, it's much like them (dutchman's)...
Kt, It grows in the same habitat, blossoms same time of year and has almost identical divided leaves...
Still think it's a Dicentra.
Here is a link that might be useful: Dicentra
"Dicentra, is a genus that some say belongs in the Fumariaceae family. Others chose to include that family as a subfamily, Fumarioideae, in the Papaveraceae? family".
It is of the Dicentra family...and the link shows the Dicentra Canadenis is there...same as photo...The book I am using is 'Wildflowers In Color' by Arthur Stupka w/assistance of Donald Robinson...identifies it as being in the 'poppy family', doesn't give scietific name....
So Eric, Dicentra family is correct but it is canadensis...your still pretty good!
Do you study plants and their scientific names? and how on earth do you begin to even decide what to look for?
the above book has more than 250 wildflowers incolor, primarily about flowers of Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Shenendoah Park copyrighted 1965...I'm sure there are lots of newer field guides that are up to date...but it has helped me identify quite a few plants in my area...cos it's not so huge that I can't go picture by picture...
in the Papaveraceae? family". (Poppy family)
Papaveraceae(sometimes including Fumariaceae)-Poppy Family.
