The closest relatives of this striking genus are the bleeding hearts. The Greek name, meaning “crested lark,” alludes to the elegant bird-like appearance of the flowers, which grow in racemes among ferny foliage.
Native to rocky woods and naturalized upon old walls in Europe, this is one of the most beautiful foil plants for a shady garden. The lacy bluish green foliage and creamy-white flowers, enhanced by green lips and yellow throats, add a delicate touch to crevices or steps. For more splendor, we combine this almost year-round bloomer with Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ and Brunnera ‘Hadspen Cream’.
