Perennials – Bleeding Heart

Product Detail

Product Overview

Bleeding heart has heart-shaped blooms that dangle like hanging lanterns on long, arched, green stems. Lovely in a cottage garden or in a naturalized, shade border.

Overview Care
The Bleeding heart was named for its beloved dangling heart-shaped flowers. An old time perennial that loves the shade producing a spectacular array of tall wands lined with dangling blossoms. Spreads in loose moist soil into large clumps. Asian garden staple that naturalizes well with American mountain natives. Looks lovely in any shade garden alongside hostas, fern, and coral bells.

Prefers fertile, humusy, neutral pH, loose, well-drained soils; avoid heavy, soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. May go dormant in hot, dry summer conditions. Apply a low-nitrogen fertilizer in early spring. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.
