Product Information

Previously known as Dicentra, Bleeding Heart produces masses of delicate, rose-pink, heart-shaped flowers in late spring every year, each tipped with an elegant white teardrop. The branches spread into arching sprays of unique blooms in a simply fabulous display of colour to fill your garden with passion!

Perfect for planting at the front of a shady border, or in groups, and will make an unusual and interesting addition to a cottage garden theme - try planting them under rose bushes where their blooms will complement the roses perfectly. Their compact, reliable habit means that they are also great in pots, for unbeatable displays.

Fully winter hardy and super-easy to grow, Bleeding Heart is a perennial plant so although it dies back underground each summer, you can be assured that each year your plant will come back bigger and stronger, giving you show-stopping displays every spring!

Top Tips

As Bleeding Heart becomes dormant in summer, it's best to plant them among other plants which will take over as the plants retreat underground.

Care Information

  • Best grown in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in a semi-shaded position, avoiding exposed locations. Will grow perfectly well in a sunny border, you'll just need to make sure that it is kept regularly watered to prevent scorch.
  • Plants may need staking to support the branches.
  • As the plant dies back over summer, the leaves will yellow and the stems wither - at this point you can cut them down to ground level, and you may get a second flush of the feathery green leaves.
  • When new growth emerges in spring, add a slow-release fertiliser to the soil to encourage longer blooming.
