Glamorise the shadier parts of your garden with pearly-white pendant blooms of Dicentra spectabilis 'Alba', commonly known as 'Lady in the Bath' or 'White Bleeding Heart'. Unlike the classic pink-flowered variety, this one flaunts pure, simple and chic white blooms, though still romantically heart shaped and pendulous on casually arching stems. Fresh and luscious looks make this perfect for a dull or shady spot which could do with a highlight.

Although Dicentra is best known as 'Bleeding Heart', the white variety has also been known unofficially as 'Lady in the Bath' - interestingly, if you turn the heart-shaped flowers upside down they look a little like a lady sitting in a bathtub washing her hair! With such intriguing details which never fail to make you stop and take a closer look, this lovely plant makes for a sweet little addition to any cool and shaded part of the garden.
