Description

Dicentra cucullaria, Dutchman's britches, or Dutchman's breeches, is a perennial herbaceous plant native to rich woods of eastern North America.

The common name Dutchman's breeches derives from their white flowers that look like white breeches. The flowers are usually white, rarely suffused with pink, produced in early spring in racemes of 3 to 14 flowers on the flower stalks 12–25 cm tall. The foliage is blueish green.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 5-8

Location: Part shade or full shade

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. These seeds require a period of cold. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 2 weeks. They will not grow yet. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
