Bleeding Hearts

 

Pink Bleeding Heart

Could any name more accurately describe the beauty of the bleeding heart?  Each spring, this classic large scale perennial graces shaded beds, borders and woodland gardens with their unique and prolific bloom. Their arching branches will span 2-3′ tall and wide, displaying rows of delicately swaying heart shaped flowers. Bleeding hearts are hardy and reliable plants. They can grow in a wide range of soils, but prefer a moist well-drained location. Bleeding hearts will grow best in part shade. As the summer temps heat up, it is not uncommon for them to die back and go dormant. Plant in part shade or dappled sun for the best performance and biggest show!
