Product Details
This is an easy to grow perennial from the himalayas where it normally would scrammble around in shrubberies etc. It is essentially a climber and does have tendrills. It will climb by itself but not up a flat wall i.e. it needs something to grow up such as a trellis or shrub. Foliage has a bronzy hue when young but turns brownish green when mature. Flowers are bright yellow and held in bunches on the upper parts of the stem. Fully herbaceous.
 Formerly Dicentra hence the name on the images!
