Both holders of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, bring together these fabulous Dicentra for a spectacular display from April until June. A multitude of heart-shaped flowers dance on arched stems above compact, bushy foliage that create interest and character to garden borders or patio containers. These elegant and popular perennials will reach a height of up to 75cm and make a wonderful display within the home when the flowers are cut, especially when the colours are combined to make more of a feature. The collection includes three of each variety: Dicentra spectabilis (pink) and spectabilis Alba (white). First grade loose root plants supplied.
