Old-Fashioned Bleeding Heart


Old-Fashioned Bleeding Heart

Dicentra spectabilis 30-36" tall. Also called Lyre Flower, its genus has been updated to Lamprocapnos.

Perfectly formed pink heart-shaped flowers with delicate white inner petals dangle like charms on bracelets along graceful racemes above attractive clumps of cut foliage. This classic hardy long-lived perennial freely self sows and will form a lovely colony if you let it. Blooms early through midspring; goes dormant in summer.

Plant 12" apart in full to dappled shade in moist well-drained fertile soil. Will not tolerate wet winter soils. 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.
