This is a genus that has been separated from Dicentra, so the well-known and widely grown Dicentra spectabilis is now called Lamprocapnos spectabils. They have curiously shaped flowers, loosely described as heart-shaped, or Dutchman's breeches, hanging in a long row below the arching stems. They are easy plants for woodland or open positions in the garden.

Lamprocapnos spectabilis white-flowered is a beautiful Bleeding Heart plant with pure white flowers and gracefully cut foliage.
