Dicentra spectabilis ‘Bleeding Heart’


Arching sprays of rose-pink, heart-shaped flowers appear in late spring above fern-like, fresh green leaves. It is very easy to grow and looks lovely where it can be appreciated towards the front of a shady border or as part of a cottage garden scheme. If the ground is kept moist, it will thrive in full sun or partial shade. It is one of the earliest perennials into flower, but the foliage does start to die back after flowering, so it is best mixed amongst summer flowers, which can then maintain interest in the border.
