For the last three years, I have watched very intently, has anyone any idea where the seed for Bleeding heart Dicentra might be? The tiny flowers don't seem to last long enough to set seed but I know there must be as seed companies offer them. TIA for your help.

After the flowers are done, if they form seed they would start having green pencil-like (although only less than 1/8" thick and up to about 3/4" long) pods hanging down, just like the flowers did. When they are ready to open, they would have black seeds inside.

Commercially, just look around at the usual seed sources for them. They aren't hard to find. But you do need to sow them quite fresh.
