I planted these and even wrote up the labels but then got distracted and never put them in the pot. Now I have no idea. One is a dahlia (Teesbroke Audrey) and one is a dicentra (cupid). Would someone be able to help me tell which is which please?

  • The second one looks like the dicentra but the first one doesn’t look like a dahlia to me.

    They both look like dicentra to me. If there's a dahlia in one of the pots, it isn't shooting yet. Mine are in the ground outside and I don't expect them to show their noses above the soil for another month at least.

    Both look like Dicentra spectabilis (now renamed to Lamprocapnos spectabilis) to me, too, maybe one is the white one and one is the red & white one?
    edit: changed my mind, 2nd could well be a dahlia or possibly peony - can we have a photo taken from the side please?

    Oh no, thank you all. I do also have three dicentra alba that I've planted as well as the cupid but I thought I'd planted them elsewhere... :/

    Why oh why do I never learn.

    Bob - thank you, side photo coming up. I don't think I've put any peonies in pots. I'm pretty sure they're all in the ground.

    I suppose they could all be dicentra (lamprothingy)? Oh no, in which case where is my dahlia?? And which ones are the alba and which are cupid?

    It's a dahlia.  Probably. :)
