Dicentra spectablis (Large Plant)

Lamprocapnos spectabilis, Bleeding Heart, Dutchman's Breeches, Lyre Flower

Hardy Perennial

Charming rose-pink, heart shaped flowers dangle enticingly from elegant arching stems, giving this plant its common name of Bleeding Heart. This beautiful spring flowering perennial is one of the earliest to bloom each year, often continuing into early summer. The finely-cut foliage forms attractive clumps that increase year after year, at a slow but steady rate. This graceful hardy perennial enjoys a reliably moist soil, making it ideal for damp woodland areas as well as cottage garden borders. Dicentra spectabilis holds an RHS AGM for its superb garden performance and makes a worthy addition to any Spring garden. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Grow dicentra plants in well drained, reliably moist, fertile ground in partial or dappled-shade. Dicentra prefers a humus-rich, neutral or alkaline soil. Improve soil conditions by adding plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost prior to planting.
Water regularly until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of chipped bark or well-rotted garden compost to the base of the plant. Dicentras have particularly fragile roots and are best left undisturbed if possible. However, overcrowded clumps may be divided in late autumn or early spring if necessary. Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Harmful if eaten.

  1. Dicentra Spectablis 3 litre pot [Bleeding Heart.]

    By SUE BROWN 07-07-2016

    Received this today07/07/2016, Expecting a plant to be ready to plant into the garden as was a 3litre plant, thought would be about 2inches or & upwards in height , the box it arrived in confirmed this being about 2ft in height, upon opening it was only this height for the Stick. Pot was covered in plastic so tight had to use a knife as no room for scissors. Carefully took it of to find nothing in the pot, only a couple shrived up brown tiny stems,very carefully found what was left of roots ,never to live again this plant... But 2 very Fat SLUGS,-urgh. they must have thought their Christmas had come early This was ordered on 22/05/2016- £12.99p-Dispatched 04/07/2016 -Received 07/07/2016.there is no-way that these SLUGS could have demolished this plant in this short of time, unless it was boxed up and not sent for a few days or so .Or unless it was like this when packaged . But there is no live plant only 2 very Fat Slugs in this box and I'm not paying £12.99p for 2 Pet Slugs.

    I ordered 2 of these plants one arrived snapped off at the base and died the other was also snapped but not as low down both plants were spindly and would have been thrown away at any reputable garden centre.
