|We seem to want it all, all the time, but there is something to be said for the|
ephemeral, reminding us of the moment – the beauty of now and the promise
it will all be coming back to us next spring.
Some plants, like the old-fashioned bleeding heart (Dicentra spectabilis) have another strategy: They bloom while the weather is relatively cool and then go completely dormant in the summer, hiding from the heat. You will never see a full-blooming bleeding heart in August. But isn’t it grand to have plants that scream April!
