Dicentra formosa 'Aurora'

  • Dicentra formosa 'Aurora' white bleeding heart
white bleeding heart

East meets west with this lovely cultivar bred by the late German nurseryman, Ernst Pagels. A hybrid involving our western native Dicentra formosa and the eastern U.S. native, Dicenta eximia combining the attributes of both. Beautiful blue-grey, ferny foliage 10 - 12 inches tall and spreading. Blooms prolifically in the spring to early summer with elegant white dangling blossoms. A beautiful addition to the woodland garden requiring light shade with moderate water once established. Goes dormant with summer drought. Flowers appeal to bumblebees and hummingbirds. Deer resistant.
