Squirrel Corn

Dicentra Canadensis is a native North American species with charming, dainty, heart-shaped flowers. This beautiful perennial plant grows best in the filtered sun or shade in USDA growing zones 3 to 7.

Squirrel Corn occurs naturally in wooded areas, loving the shade and moisture of forest floors. It is a popular choice for gardeners, especially in the eastern and midwestern United States.

Squirrel Corn Is Whimsical and Charming

Squirrel Corn gets its common name from its seed pods that resemble a shape similar to a squirrel's ears. Alternatively, some call it a Bleeding Heart, a nickname referencing the beautiful, delicate, drooping heart-shaped flowers. Two heart-shaped petals connected at the base and hang from a long stem comprise a single flower. They are usually pink or white and bloom from May to June.

The foliage of the plant is a mix of blue-green and gray-green. After the flowers finish for the season, it provides lush greenery until the fall.

Dicentra Canadensis flowers have a sweet, delicate scent with a soft hint of vanilla. The scent is subtle and pleasant, making these flowers a great addition to any garden or bouquet.

Caring for Squirrel Corn

Taking care of Squirrel Corn is an easy process all season long.

  • To ensure healthy growth and beautiful flowering, give this plant plenty of filtered sunlight and water.
  • When it comes to water, keep the soil moist but not soggy. Water just the top inch of the soil when it feels dry.
  • Cut back any dead, damaged, or brown stems and foliage in early spring before new growth begins.

With these simple care tips, your Squirrel Corn will certainly thrive!
