Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart

Dicentra spectabilis 'Valentine®' PP22,739, COPF

Compact, fragrant variety boasts dark green leaves tinted with gray and pendulous red flower stems that are great in bouquets.

A new outstanding selection of the Old-fashioned Bleedingheart. This beauty features arching spikes of elegant cherry-red, heart-shaped blooms with white tips held on dark burgundy stems. Blooms late spring to early summer. The delicate ferny foliage matures to an attractive powdery grey-green. Thrives in damp borders and woodland gardens but also makes a fantastic addition to a shady patio container. Protection from direct hot sun is recommended. In warm regions plants may die back and become dormant by late summer. USPP#22739: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
