|I found this Dicentra all alone and without a tag amongst Dicentra 'Stuart Boothman' in a nursery. The nurseryman didn't know its name nor was it listed in their catalog. The leaves look similar to the ones of D.Stuart Bootman, maybe a bit less finely divided. The shape of the flowers is the same but the colour is very different though. My first thought was maybe Dicentra 'Ivory Hearts' but somehow it doesn't really fit and Ivory hearts has entirely white flowers..|
For comparison the Dicentra 'Stuart Bootman' I also purchased..

|Both are beautiflu Myriam, I feel some envy coming on! |
Dicentra formosa 'Langtrees' looks close but I'm not sure of the leaves ..
Dicentra 'Aurora' is maybe a better fit ..
I wouldn't guarantee that most of the photos are correctly named!

|I think you have nailed it down Janet, it really does fit Dicentra 'Aurora'! Thanks a lot!!|

|There's a few sites using the same photo which is probably a stock photo of Aurora, that does look like it. |
