Dicentra spectabilis Alba

White Bleeding Heart

A perfect foil to its pink and white flower colored cousin, 'Alba' is a magnificent presence in the spring garden with fleshy, medium green, deeply cut foliage forming a considerable mound topped by strings of pure white bleeding heart flowers starting in late April and blooming into late May. Its size and its blooming power can leave you breathless, as this traditional garden plant still packs a powerful punch after all these years. Plant 'Alba' in semi-shaded to shaded areas and in moist, well-drained soils and feel free to combine them with spectabilis for a fantastic display of bloom!
