Dicentra eximia

 
Common name fernleaf bleeding heart
Family fumariaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers rose (spring-summer)
Size 1'
Light part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil (not too dry)

Pretty cut foliage in low-growing mounds, with typical bleeding heart flowers over a long season of bloom. The flowers aren't as in-your-face pink as those of Dicentra spectabilis, but their more demure coloration is fine by me.

Dicentra eximia

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
