Beautiful Spring Plants

Bleeding Heart- Dicentra spectabilis. This is a wonderful, elegant herbaceous perennial. In late spring/ early summer the plant has arching stems that bear hanging heart shaped flowers with pink outer petals and crisp white inner flowers. The leaves are very fine and are almost fern like. These plants grow to 1.2m 4ft in height and 45cm 18inchs wide. It is best to be planted in damp, neutral soil with fertiliser and divided every three to four years.
