Plant Description

Wild Bleeding Heart is one of the few perennial wildflowers that will flower spring to fall. Peaking in late spring, the delicate pale rose flowers are more or less heart-shaped with a flared base. They are clustered on a spike arched over blue-green feathery foliage. Plants form clumps about 1 foot in height and spread. The key to prolonging the bloom and vigor of Bleeding Heart is to give it partial shade, ample moisture, and good drainage, and to deadhead it regularly. It looks great with Blue Satin Sedge and Hexastylis.
