Valentine® Dicentra

Description
You've likely seen Dicentra (Bleeding Heart) before and cooed at the pretty pink hearts dangling from arching limbs. However, this old-fashioned perennial could use a little upgrade—brilliant, clear red color makes these heart-shaped flowers all the more romantic and exciting. The benefit of Dicentra is that it's a shade-lover that'll provide a focal point in an often-overlooked area of the garden. Now it'll do so even more. Want to spruce up a shady patio? This variety grows to around 24-30", so it's a nice container feature. For creative, heart-pounding indoor décor, cut a whole stem of blooms. Dicentra spectabilis 'HORDIVAL' PP22739
