The Bleeding Heart Specatabilis 'Alba', 'Dicentra specatabilis 'Alba', is a fast-growing perennial with white, heart-shaped flowers. 'Alba' has two distinguishing features that make it a little different from the rest. One is the wonderful white flowers that it produces. Two, the foliage is lime-green rather then green. Dicentra 'Alba' has a plant height of 2-3' and a width of 20'. Dicentra should be planted in full sun but will tolerate morning shade. It is heat tolerant and needs moist soil. Do not let it dry out. Dicentra will bloom from May to September and is a major attractor to butterflies. 'Alba' makes excellent cut flowers, in mass with groundcovers, or in potted containers. Being an old fashioned plant, it is a must in any landscape.
