Dicentra canadensis

Squirrel Corn

The foliage of this plant is almost identical to that of Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria), however, the flower of the Squirrel Corn appears much more heart-shaped than that of the Dutchman's Breeches. The two species are often seen blooming right next to each other in deep woodland areas. The common name comes from the root corms that resemble kernels of corn. Summer dormant so plant with neighbors that will fill in.
