Lamprocapnos spectabilis valentine (formerly Dicentra)

This beautiful plant starts in early spring, when the vigorous, plum-coloured shoots push through the soil, producing delicate fern-like foliage that matures to a beautiful, dark grey-green.
Closely followed by arching stems carrying elegant, scarlet-red, heart shaped flowers.
Commonly known as Bleeding Heart this is a beautiful plant to use under shrubs and roses or for the front of your shady beds and borders.
It can even grow in containers
Easy to grow.
Enriching your soil with plenty of leaf mould to boost its humus content and help it retain moisture is good for Lamprocapnos
