In this group we incude with Dicentra plants of other genera that have been separated by botanists, notably Lamprocapnos spectabils, formerly Dicentra spectabilis. They all have curiously shaped flowers, loosely described as heart-shaped, or in one case as Dutchman's breeches, one or more hanging below the stem. The plants range from substantial herbaceous kinds to high alpines, and may accordingly be easy plants for woodland or open positions in the garden, or require careful alpine house cultivation.
