|Habitat||First Cousin to Dutchmen's Breeches. One of the first plants to emerge from the woodland floor, it emerges with Wild Leeks. It is a true ephemeral and will disappear completely by summer. It thrives in moist woodland spoil in the dappled sun of spring. It is pollinated by early bumble bees. With its bleeding heart shaped flowers, some call it "Girls" to the Dutchmen's Breeches "Boys". Its common name, Squirrel Corn, is after the yellow, corn kernel shaped corm at its root.|
