View a slideshow of plant images from this genus
With charm to spare, alabaster heart-shaped “lockets”, each inscribed by a small pink mark gracefully dangle from pendulous, branched sprays atop a soft-looking ferny hummock. This choice evergreen perennial easily naturalizes given a cool moist location, the fernlike delicacy of its deeply divided, smoky blue leaves belying their vigor.
Unparalleled in the shade garden, ‘Margery Fish’ becomes summer dormant when the soil is too dry, can be planted as a lacy counterpoint to Tiarella ‘Mint Chocolate’ or cut for a sterling addition to a bouquet.
Blooms April–May & again in fall.
Size: 10" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Hailing from the Pope’s Hadspen Gardens in Somerset, England, this Dicentra’s artful golden mounds of dissected ferny leaves will light up the shady corners of your garden. Nodding heart-styled rose pink flowers line long, one-sided arching racemes above spectacular glowing foliage that is more yellow in bright shade and transforms to lime green in deeper shade.
‘Gold Heart’ can be massed with blue flowering Pulmonaria ‘Highdown’ and Anemone nemorosa ‘Vestal’ for sparkling color and contrasting foliar textures.
Blooms April – May.
Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.
