Bacchanal Bleeding Heart


Bacchanal Bleeding Heart

Dicentra formosa 15" tall.

Burgundy-red oblong heart-shaped blossoms dangle from long leafless stems. Flowers are a little less tidy than the respectable D. spectabilis. With consistent moisture, the lacy blue-green foliage of this Dicentra stays awake and looking good all season long. Plant 12" apart in full to dappled shade in evenly moist well-drained fertile soil. Will not tolerate wet winter soils. Blooms in late spring. Z3. (bare-root crowns)

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. Store plants in their packaging in a cool (35–40°) location until you are ready to plant. If it’s going to be awhile, you can pot up your perennials.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
