Bleeding Heart - Ivory Hearts
Bleeding Heart Ivory Hearts, Dicentra 'Ivory Hearts' PP#15,599, displays exquisite, pure white flowers that gently float above the grayish-green foliage.
Dicentra 'Ivory Hearts' has sweet, heart-shaped flowers and blooms from late spring into late summer. The flowers contrast nicely with the foliage and the compact habit performs well in containers and is also suitable for rock gardens.
Given adequate moisture, the foliage remains attractive in summer, and may produce an attractive ground cover effect.
Dicentra is perfect for a border or patio container, and will thrive in a partially shaded spot. This really is a shade lover, delighting in full to part shade conditions.
The plant will perform in the full sun but will tend to disappear in mid-summer when it has all the sun it can handle. It usually pops back up the following spring.
This is a plant for fertile but well-drained soils. It prefers consistently moist, humus-rich soils similar to a great woodland soil full of organic matter and richly fertile.
The simplest way to mimic this is to add several shovels of compost around the base of the plant every spring.
