‘Alba’ is the charming, white flowered form of the Old-Fashioned Bleeding Heart that has been a garden favorite for years. It is a vigorous plant that will provide successful results for even the beginning gardener. This perennial will mature to a large size and is best left undisturbed. Graceful, early summer-flowering perennial with sprays of heart-shaped flowers dangling from arching, fleshy stems. Best for the shaded border or woodland garden. Because foliage goes dormant, it is best to plant this bleeding heart through a loose ground cover or among later developing perennials such as hostas and ferns which will fill in as the bleeding heart foliage begins to die back. This is a Herbaceous perennial. Also a good cut flower.
