Description
 
Chinese Bleeding Heart.   While we miss Dicentra, we do enjoy this new name and the "ichtyo" reference to the fishtail flowers.  This clone probably hails from a Sichuan Mt Emei collection by Don Jacobs.  This is a vigorous and impressive plant growing in shaded moist sites in the wild.  Taking that into account, that is where we grow it here in our shade garden where it grows under an Ilex fargesii with the odd Lilium nepalense poking through.  Broad leaflets on 20" tall foliage with large palest yellow flowers.  In exceptionally rich moist soil this can really get a head of steam going and perhaps be too much of a good thing but in our shade garden we have been nothing but happy for the seven years it has been growing.
