Dicentra spectabilis 'Gold Heart'
Common Name: Bleeding Heart Family: Papaveraceae (The Poppy Family)

Dicentra spectabilis 'Gold Heart'
Zoom In Photo:

Bred by fellow Canadians Sandra and Nori Pope during their tenure at Hadspen Garden in the UK, this is the classic bleeding heart with chartreuse to gold foliage to back up the rose-pink and white flowers. It's shocking, it's audacious, it's electric, it's fabulous. Great for illuminating a dark corner of the shade garden. May go dormant in summer if soils are dry.
