The deep red heart-shaped flowers add a welcome twist to the cherished pink classics. Chains of puffy hearts dangle along frosted plum-colored stems. Icy-white inner petals provide striking contrast to the vibrant red hearts. Our Valentine shouts "Be Mine"! Stunning!

Once the newly emerging foliage of Dicentra spectabilis begins to actively grow in the spring, you can practically see the plant grow a few inches taller each day. It quickly grows into a powdery-green compact, bushy clump. Also known as Lamprocapnos spectabilis.
