Plant of the month
Featuring delicate rows of heart-shaped flowers suspended from arching stems and pretty foliage, this is a truly striking plant. Previously known as Dicentra spectabilis, it has had a change of name to Lamprocapnos due to a better understanding of its DNA. The pinky-red varieties are more common, but the white is worth seeking out. They prefer semi-shade and moist soil – plant at the front of a border to show them off.
