Dicentra ‘Ruby Gold’


Ideal shipping window for Dicentra spectabilis is January thru May. Pickup only after May 31st, must be pre-booked 6 months in advance.


The first gold foliage Dicentra spectabilis with true red flowers. Developed from purposeful breeding, all other gold foliage varieties have been mutations. The stems are strong and upright, the flowers are large and numerous but the color… WOW, brilliant red with a touch of unusual orange! A great container habit and is long lasting in the garden; a great improvement over the still popular 'Gold Heart'. Exceptional vigor.
