(Bleeding Heart) As precious as gold itself, Dicentra White Gold is a stunning gold-leaved form of the old-time favorite, common bleeding heart! Arching lime green-colored stems carry chains of crisp white heart-shaped flowers above the dramatic metallic gold leaves. Standing 24-30 inches tall, the fern-like foliage appears early in the spring and provides a colorful point of interest in the shade garden. Like other Dicentra , White Gold will go dormant during the heat of the summer. We recommend planting near hostas or ferns that will fill in the area after the Dicentra foliage dies back.

Just like its sister plant 'Gold Heart', there is nothing better than the bright lime green foliage that is the first to appear in my spring garden. Before anything else is even close to blooming, 'White Gold' is standing tall and the beautiful strands of Bleeding Hearts are dangling for all to see.
