'White Gold' bleeding heart (Lamprocapnos spectabilis ‘White gold’)
Genus:  Dicentra

If this plant doesn’t brighten up your shade, you’re doing something wrong. The golden leaves beautifully highlight the bright white flowers in spring. Vigorous growth means this perennial should bulkup quickly in its first season.

Noteworthy Characteristics: 

With brilliant-white, heart-shaped flowers from golden leaves, this Dicentra is fresh and will brighten any shade garden.

Care: 

This plant likes moisture, allow to dry slightly between watering, but don't let get bone dry when young in the greenhouse. In the garden, if you let it dry out too much it will go summer dormant early.

Propagation: 

Can be divided in spring every 3-4 years.  Ragged or yellowed foliage can be cut back to 4".
