Description :

At last! A huge cherry-red heart!

We know Dicentra spectabilis, which is pink and white and the pure white D. spectabilis 'Alba'. Now we have Dicentra spectabilis 'Valentine':

Dicentra 'Valentine' is a generous plant with a short springtime cycle, which literally bursts into life in March-April. Its foliage emerges plum-coloured then turns green grey, and from which appear garlands of small scintillating two-tone, white and cherry-red hearts. Yes!!

Height: 60 cm. Spread: 45 cm

Accompanying plants : Hosta 'Patriot', Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola', Acorus 'Ogon', Heuchera 'Fire Alarm', Primula 'Valentine'

Grow in partial shade in good, moist, light, well-drained garden soil.


This plant goes into summer dormancy early and only re-appears the following spring, so remember to mark its location and limit watering to keep the tuberous roots healthy! Mulch with mature compost at the end of winter.
