      A fast-growing, dwarf perennial with arching stems of creamy white, heart-shaped flowers from late spring to late summer. The blue-green, fern-like foliage forms a soft mound, and is a lovely foil to other plants. Easy to grow, it looks great planted en masse as a groundcover at the front of a shady border or as part of a cottage garden scheme. Dicentras are northern hemisphere plants, growing from Asia to North America. In their natural habitat they are found in moist soils in the cool margins of woodlands.

    • Garden care: Dicentras are happy in any good garden soil that is fertile but not too heavy. Enrich the soil with plenty of leaf mould before planting and apply a mulch in autumn, too. A light fertilising in March will help enormously.
