Description: One of the most elegant perennials, Bleeding Heart (dicentra spectabilis spectabilis) is a graceful herbaceous perennial boasting gracefully srching stems studded with lockets of pink flowers, whose hearts are no doubt bleeding, adorned with protruding white petals. They hang above the attractive foliage of soft green, divided leaves. Blooming for 4-6 weeks in late spring to early summer, it tends to decline or disappear in mid-summer. However, if it is kept well-watered during the spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early fall. 

Ornamental Features: Great as fresh cut flowers, Deer and Rabbit resistant, Attracts Butterflies and Bees

Landscape Features: Great for shaded borders or woodland gardens, plant this old garden favourite among other perennials such as hosta, astilble, pulmonaria, or ferns to fill the space left by its foliage when going dormant
