    Could it be Dicentra? Possibly dicentra spectabilis (common name "Bleeding Heart").

    Whatplant, what did you plant there, Dicentra or Peony? I'm starting to lean towards Dicentra myself. Janet

    It looks like both to me..but leaning towards the dicentra. If you planted it last fall there would not have been much left of the bleeding heart however they go dormant at summers end.

    I have no idea, that's why I asked... I don't remember what I planted, I only remember that I planted some tulips.

    Whatplant: I originally thought Dicentra because it looks too fleshy/glaucous to be a peony.

    In the last five minutes I've taken this picture of my emerging peony. Maybe it will help (sorry the quality's not too good).

    I know how you can tell, if your plant's stem is hollow, it is Dicentra. I had to clean up a bunch of these and the hollow stems were full of Earwigs, yuck. Janet

    Whatplant the reason I asked is I thought maybe our identifications may have sparked your memory as to what was planted. If you are willing to sacrifice a stem, I'm sure we would all like to know, and then you could be sure of how to properly care for it. Janet
