Description

This plant goes dormant during the summer in warm areas, but it can be forced for flowering on Valentine's Day by bringing dormant rhizomes into a cool greenhouse in late winter.

Dicentra spectabilis come in vibrant pink to white kissed with pink, solid white and delicate pinks. They are sure to be a showstopper in any garden. The delicate appeal of the lantern, heart-shaped flowers takes you back to the Victorian era and brings you back to the glory that this plant will have in your garden. The colors bring joy, as they appear to dance to the breeze thorughout the spring.
