Dicentra spectabilis Valentine (Lamprocapnos)

Bleeding Heart Valentine

A superb selection of the popular bleeding heart, once known as Dicentra, Lamprocapnos spectabilis Valentine is a clump-forming, herbaceous perennial, with handsome, divided leaves, which emerge purplish-red and gradually turn grey-green. In April, May and June, light crimson, heart-shaped flowers with white tips dangle from arching wine-red stems, contrasting beautifully with the foliage. A gorgeous early summer perennial for a partially shaded border, it’s well-behaved, and never needs dividing. Bleeding heart Valentine holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
