Lamprocapnos spectabilis or Dicentra spectabilis (bleeding heart or Asian bleeding-heart) is a species of flowering plant in the poppy family Papaveraceae.
It is valued in gardens and in floristry for its heart-shaped pink and white flowers, borne in spring.
As its name says, it's really a spectacular flower!
The outer petals are bright fuchsia-pink, while the inner ones are white. The flowers strikingly resemble the conventional heart shape, with a droplet beneath. The pure white-flowered 'Alba', somewhat more robust than the species, is a popular cultivar.
This beautiful Lamprocapnos spectabilis variety "Alba" I photographed at the Botanical Garden of Madrid.
Easy to grow these plants, however, do not like direct exposure to the sun.
I managed to find the rhizomes of this particular plant and grow them in my terrace. Very satisfying to see these beautiful flowers bloom.
I really like them so much! A romantic plant this Bleeding Heart.
thanks for your time!
