Dicentra  'King of Hearts'
Zoom In Photo:

'King of Hearts' is a compact bleeding heart hybrid that produces nicely-textured, deeply-cut, ferny, bluish-green foliage in a mound to eight inches tall and fourteen inches wide. The rich carmine-rose coloured flowers are nodding, heart-shaped, and held above the foliage. The initial bloom occurs in spring but plants will likely bloom throughout summer and into fall in cool, shady conditions. A cross of the Japanese D. peregrina with two American species D. formosa subsp. oregana and D. eximia.
