Dicentra spectabilis perennial plant
One of the stars of the spring garden. Dicentra, often known as bleeding hearts is a real show stopper. This lovely perennial plant has delicate heart-shaped flowers in mid to late spring which hangs down from the foliage.
Dicentra can be grown in a pot as well as the garden and is nice and hardy so it can be kept outside all year round in the UK.
Growing to 60cm heigh and spreading 40cm Dicentra prefers dabbled light shade to full sun.
