Dicentra Spectabilis Alba, is a graceful perennial that is fabulous for brightening a shady border. In late spring, it bears elegant, arching wands of heart-shaped, pristine white flowers with protruding white petals, which dangle above the fern like foliage of fresh green leaves. Blooming for up to 6 weeks in late spring to early summer, it tends to decline or even disappear in summer. However, if it is kept well watered during spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early fall. Great for shaded borders or woodland gardens, plant it among other perennials such as hosta, astilbe, pulmonaria or ferns to fill in the space left by its foliage when going dormant.

Plant in moist but well drained fertile soil, attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, and resistant to deer and rabbit. Perfect for beds and borders, woodland, cottage and formal garden styles and great for underplanting shrubs such as roses.
