Lamprocapnos / Dicentra spectabilis ‘Valentine’ (Bleeding Heart)
€8.99 “Price excl. VAT: €7.92”
First introduced onto the market in the USA last autumn, this new cultivar has become an instant success. In early spring the vigorous, plum-coloured shoots push through the soil, producing delicate ferny foliage that matures to a glorious, dark grey-green. This is closely followed by arching stems that carry elegant, scarlet-red, heart shaped flowers.
Dicentras are happy in any good garden soil that is fertile but not too heavy. Enrich the soil with plenty of leaf mould before planting and apply a mulch in autumn too. A light fertilising in March will help enormously.
