Dicentra spectabilis "Gold Heart"

The "Golden Heart" dicentra, located in a shady corner of the front flowerbed, is beginning to emerge from its Winter dormancy. I am always amazed by its shocking pink color as it initially pushes above the soil line. It gives no clue to its future color - an equally bright tone of chartreuse! Right now it reminds me of some exotic, underwater anemone you would see in a Jacque Cousteau film.
