Native with delicate, fern-like foliage for massing, woodland, and specimen. Easy and very long-blooming. Seedlings from straight exima will occasionally produce a white-flowered form, even the plants in our crops. The cultivars such as ‘King of Hearts’ will always be true to color. Medium-light pink flowers appear between May and August.
Dicentra are one of the most popular shade perennials with pendant, heart-shaped flowers and finely textured foliage. Fast growing and easy.
