Dactylicapnos (Dicentra) scandens

Dactylicapnos (Dicentra) scandens, Pyracantha, Atropa belladonna
A scrambling species with the typical light airy foliage of the family and strung with hundreds of golden yellow lockets in summer. Sometimes considered short-lived, mine have been going for some years now (touch wood) going from strength to strength without any special care on our heavy loam.

In case there was any doubt about the vigour or longevity of this species...

(btw the climbing Dicentras are not closely related to the creeping species and are now placed in other genera, in this case Dactylicapnos.)
