According to Bleeding Hearts, Corydalis, and Their Relatives, this is a Japanese hybrid between Komakusa (Dicentra peregrina) , the Japanese and Siberian alpine species, and Dicentra eximia 'Alba', a white-flowered variety of the Appalachian species. It was bred by Akira Shiozaki, who also bred Bleeding Heart (Dicentra 'Candy Hearts') and Bleeding Heart (Dicentra 'Burning Hearts') .
