BLEED­ING HEART

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.
