Dicentra

 

a genus of perennial herbaceous rhizomic plants of the family Fumariaceae. The leaves are triternatopinnate, or tripinnatisect, or compound. The flowers are heart-shaped and racemose. They have four petals, two of which are outer petals and spurred. About 20 species are distributed in East Asia and North America. In the USSR there is one species D. perigrina, found on bald peaks and outcrops in Eastern Siberia and the Far East. Horticulturists cultivate the bleeding heart (D. spectabilis), which has large rose-red flowers in a one-sided cluster, the Pacific bleeding heart (D.formosa), and the eastern bleeding heart (D. eximia).
