Clear blue-grey foliage and creamy white flowers on this form make an attractive plant for a shady spot. Low growing, slowly spreading, hardy and easy.  25cm.

We've had this plant for many years and have always been impressed by it's robust nature but elegant looks.  Finely cut leaves are brightly glaucous and make a superb foil for the creamy white flowers, with pinkish tips to the inner parts.  An unusual colour combination, especially for a shady place.

We have Dicentra formosa ssp. oregana growing at the foot of a silver birch (Betula tianshanica) in a very dry, rooty soil and it performs very well.  The new growth emerges from the middle of February most years and the flowers can start from early March, potentially continuing to flower until late summer if the soil doesn't get too dry.

From Oregon and California in the USA.
