Dicentra spectabilis

The beautiful, arching stems and pendent spring flowers of Dicentra spectabilis are perfect for woodland-style borders.

Commonly known as bleeding heart, Dicentra spectabilis thrives in shade, requiring very little maintenance.

This collection comprises two varieties ? pink and white. Plant them around shrubs and in shady beds to create a relaxed, woodland planting scheme, or try combining them with spring flowering bulbs.

Height: 1.2m, Spread: 45cm, Flowering period: April-June, Position: partial shade or full shade

Growing Info Tab

Plant Dicentra bareroots at the earliest opportunity following delivery. Should soil conditions prevent planting directly into borders (if soil is frozen or waterlogged), bareroots should be potted up, watered sparingly and grown on in a cool position. Choose a position on any moist, rich, fertile soil in dappled or semi shade. Dicentra prefers a neutral to slightly alkaline soil. Work some compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil. Dig a hole wide enough to accommodate the bareroot with its roots spread out and deep enough that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level. Backfill the hole with soil and firm the plant in gently. Water well to settle the soil.

More Info Tab

Water regularly until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of chipped bark or well-rotted garden compost to the base of the plant. Dicentras have particularly fragile roots and are best left undisturbed if possible. However, overcrowded clumps may be divided in late autumn or early spring if necessary.
