Radiant yellow foliage glows in spring, creating a brilliant focal point in the shade garden. Arching sprays of pink and white heart-shaped blooms, dangle from the stems in late spring. The foliage typically mellows a bit in color as the season progresses. This cultivar grows a bit smaller than the typical D. spectabilis, reaching heights of up to 2 feet at maturity.
