Dicentra spectabilis 'Valentine'

Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart

Plant Type: Perennial

A new spin on an old favorite! If you love the classic look of Old Fashioned Bleeding Hearts but are looking for an updated color palette, try this new red flowering selection.

Much like the species, this variety also grows quickly to form a robust clump of deep green foliage topped with arching flower stems in late spring. When the foliage is emerging in spring, it has a tinge of pretty purple color to it.

The flower stems on this variety are deep red and the large, puffy heart-shaped flowers are bright red with a white tip. They dangle romantically from the leafless stems over a period of many weeks. The plant remains attractive after it is finished blooming until it goes summer dormant.
