What looks better than a hosta?

Hi Everyone,
        I have been out looking at the hostas which have started unfurling here, and there was one plant out there which stood out as the best-looking plant in the yard. Nope; it's not a hosta, at least not yet. What really catches my eye is a dicentra spectabilis with bright gold foliage that I picked up somewhere last year. All the stems, leaf and flower, are red and the flowers are the traditional bleeding heart deep pink and white. This plant looked really good last summer as well, so it's not a spring flash that gets dull later.
        I'd recommend it to anyone who likes gold foliage, but I don't know the name. Is anybody out there familiar with this plant? Does anyone know who will be selling it this year?
                                                                                            ..........Bill Meyer
