Product Description
Dicentra Spectabilis Alba 'White Bleeding Heart

Arching sprays of dainty pure white, heart-shaped flowers appear in late spring above fern-like fresh green leaves. Easy to grow, this elegant dicentra is ideal for illuminating a woodland garden or as part of a cottage garden scheme. As long as the ground is kept moist, it will thrive in full sun or shade.

Dicentras are northern hemisphere plants, growing from Asia to North America. In their natural habitat they are found in moist soils in the cool margins of woodlands. This dicentra was first introduced in 1816 then disappeared from cultivation but was reintroduced by plant collector Robert Fortune in 1846. It soon became one of the most popular garden plants.

Garden care: Dicentras are happy in any good garden soil that's fertile but not too heavy. Enrich the soil with plenty of leaf mould before planting and apply a mulch in autumn too.

A light fertilising in March will help enormously.

Eventual Height: 90cm
