Dutchman's Breeches
Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria)
photo by: Ken Watson, 2001

A member of the Poppy family (Bleeding Heart sub-family), this early spring flower looks like a pair of tiny pantaloons. The photo on the left gives a sense of scale, how small these (and many other spring flowers) are. It pays to stop and take some time to have a close look at these and other beautiful looking spring flowers in the Rideau area.
