Dicentra spectabilis “Bleeding Heart”
Flower in late Spring. Plants form a bushy, upright mound of light green foliage. Dangling bright-pink locket flowers are held on arching stems, and these are excellent for cutting. Performs best in a rich, moist soil with partial shade, or at least protection from hot afternoon sun. After flowering, the plants should be sheared back to 6 inches tall, to rejuvenate the foliage. These often go completely dormant by midsummer, to return again the following spring.
