Dicentra spectabilis (Bleeding Hearts)
Add elegance and charm to cottage gardens, wildflower gardens and shaded spaces, and container plantings, with Dicentra spectabilis (Bleeding Hearts). This popular shade perennial features lovely pink, heart-shaped pendant flowers in mid to late spring. Growing 24-30" tall, it's ideal for inter-planting with spring bulbs such as daffodils, as it will hide their dying foliage. Dicentra spectabilis (Bleeding Hearts) also looks great in combination with ferns and hostas in the shade or woodland gardens. It performs best when grown in full to partial shade. Deer tend to avoid.
