According to Bleeding Hearts, Corydalis, and Their Relatives, this is a chance seedling of Pacific Bleeding Heart (Dicentra 'Bountiful') with very finely cut leaves, introduced to the gardening world by Blooms of Bressingham, a nursery in England and named after one of their owners. Like D. 'Bountiful', it's a hybrid of Oregon bleeding heart (Dicentra formosa subsp. oregona) and Fringed Bleeding Heart (Dicentra eximia) .
