One of the most elegant perennials. Bleeding Heart, is a graceful perennial boasting gracefully arching stems studded with locket pink flowers, whose hearts are no doubt bleeding, adorned with protruding white petals. They hang above the attrcative foliage of soft green, divided leaves. Blooming for up to 6 weeks in late spring to early summer, it tends to decline or even disapper in mid-summer. However, if it is kept well watered during the spring, dormancy can be delayed until late summer or early fall. Great for shaded borders or woodland gardens, plant this old garden favourite among other perennials such as hosta, astilbe, pumonaria, or ferns to fill in the space left by the foliage once the plant goes dormant.

Plant in well drained fertile soil, attractive to butterflies and resistant to deer and rabbits. Ideal for beds and borders, underplanting roses and other shrubs, or the woodland garden. Grows up to 3 feet high with a spread of 3 feet.
