Dicentra spectabilis 'Valentine'
This is a color breakthrough for a lovely old standard. The dangling rows of heart-shaped flowers are vivid red with the same white inner petals as the species. Vivid red and white flowers appear between May and June. PP#22739. Illegal propagation prohibited.
Dicentra are one of the most popular shade perennials with pendant, heart-shaped flowers and finely textured foliage. Fast growing and easy.
