Dicentra - snow damage
Last night there was very heavy snowfall overnight in East Lancs and I found my three Dicentra plants in a very sorry state this morning. Previously they had been growing well, were about 18" tall and full of flower buds. I had supported the plants with circular metal perennial supports but the weight of the snow had bent most of the stems over the tops of the supports. I accept that I will have to cut off all the damaged stems and sadly lose all the promising buds but I wondered if anyone could advise me whether the plants might still flower, albeit later in the season?
