This old garden favorite, Bleeding Heart (Dicentra Spectabilis), is a graceful perennial, offering a soft green foliage and attractive pink or white nodding heart-shaped flowers coupled with protruding white petals hanging from arching stems above the foliage.

★ Blooming in mid to late spring, it may rebloom throughout the summer in cool areas.

Dicentra Spectabilis, Bleeding Heart 
Dicentra Spectabilis - Chanticleer Garden, Lisa Roper

★ Growing up to 36 inches tall (90 cm), it thrives in part shade or full shade and is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil. 

★ Great candidate for shaded borders or woodland gardens, it would be a good idea to plant it among other perennials such as hostas and ferns to fill in the space left by its foliage when going dormant.
