  • Product Description

    Squirrel Corn Plant - Dicentra canadensis

    The wildflower Squirrel Corn Plant would make a lovely addition to any gardening or landscaping plot or design. The Squirrel Corn Plant gets its name from the small, yellowish food storage structures that gather at the root, which have the appearance of a corn kernel. Above these kernels shoots a smooth, arching stem and fern-like leaves. Atop the stems, Squirrel Corn blooms dainty heart-shaped flowers. These flowers range in color from white, to pinkish-white, to pale lavender. They hang delicately upside down from their stalks. Each stalk produces 4-8 of these fragrant flowers. Squirrel Corn is a perennial, so these sweet blooms can be enjoyed year after year. The flowers bloom in the spring, usually in late April or May. The plant prefers to be planted in rich and humusy soil, and it grows best in the eastern and midwestern states (zones 2-9). When the plant is mature, it will reach to about 8-12 inches, and it can be grown in partial to full shade. The plant is naturally found in woodlands, along trails, and on low hillsides. Because Squirrel Corn is pleasing and easy to grow and care for, it would be perfect in any yard or garden. It would be especially attractive planted among ferns and other leafy plants because of its fern-like leaf. Squirrel Corn would also be beautiful as a natural-looking ground cover or planted along a pathway. If planted in your garden or landscaping design, you will be rewarded with beautiful butterflies and cute chipmunks, as they are attracted to Squirrel Corn. Because it is a wildflower, you can also expect extra pollination for your garden. And, conveniently, squirrel corn also contains a toxin that many mammals, including deer, avoid. So there is no need to worry that your attractive wildflower will be nibbled on by a wild animal. The Squirrel Corn Plant will absolutely be the perfect addition.
