Dicentra ‘Ivory Hearts’
Common Name: Dicentra x ‘Ivory Hearts’, Fern Leaf Bleeding Hearts, pp15599
‘Ivory Hearts’ is a bleeding heart cultivar that is perhaps best noted for its extended bloom period, particularly in cool summer climates. In addition, this cultivar is noted for its compact shape, strong rhizomatous roots and conspicuous flowers appearing above the foliage.
Clusters of nodding, heart-shaped, ivory white flowers appear on leafless flower stems that arch above deeply-cut, fern-like blue-green leaves. A primary bloom will occur from late spring to early summer, with continued flowering that will slow down considerably or stop in the heat of the summer. When the temperatures cool in late summer to early fall, additional rebloom may occur. Given adequate moisture, the foliage remains attractive in summer, and may produce an attractive ground cover effect.
Dicentra (Bleeding Hearts) have always been a treasured perennial among gardeners for their famous heart-shaped, spring-time flowers. Now with so many varieties that seem to bloom all summer, this genus is a great option for all the gardeners who want colour fuel flowers in the shade.
