Dicentra Spectabalis Alba ( Lamprocapnos spectabalis Alba)
Dicentra Spectabalis Alba / Lamprocapnos spectabalis alba is a hardy perennial that flowers early in the Spring, it’s fresh, light green ferny foliage appears in early April or earlier if you’re in a sheltered area. The arching rows of white hearts are well in flower by mid April and last until July, Although Dicentra spectabalis Alba is fantastic in the shade where it’s white hearts glisten from the gloom, I have grown it in full sun here in damp west Wales and it has been very happy! Although this is a tough plant it does tend to have brittle stems that aren’t suited to a very exposed , windy site, but most average garden conditions suit it and it will reward you with a good sized clump.
Plants are supplied bare root October – April.
1.5/2ltr pots May – September ( Plants will be cut back May onwards to avoid basal damage to brittle stems)
