Plant Description

This is the big showy Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart which your grandmother had. Blue-green and pink sprouts often with visible flower buds poke through the ground in mid-spring and finally unfurl into 2 foot mounds of blue-green succulence with arching stems weighted down by lovely rows of snowy white dangling hearts. Flowering can last for a month or more and is determined by moisture. The sooner the ground becomes dry, the sooner Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart will turn yellow and go dormant until next year. Site this plant in more shade than sun with good soil. It is long lived and will just get bigger and bigger every year. Fantastic with Foamflower, Bluebells, and Golden Ragwort.
