One of the oldest plants still in cultivation.
As pretty as they are useful, it's easy to see why generations of gardeners have grown Old-Fashioned Bleeding Heart. This shade perennial forms bushy clumps of powdery-green foliage. What really makes them special, though, are the long, arching sprays that drip with dozens of pink, puffy, heart-shaped flowers with dainty white tears. They bloom from late spring until early summer and attract butterflies. Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts are often planted with spring-blooming flower bulbs because they draw attention away from spent bulb foliage. These easy-to-grow plants look lovely in woodland gardens, edging pathways, planted as ground cover or in containers. Deer tend to find them unappetizing.This woodland native has been a favourite for generations. Long, arching sprays drip with puffy, heart-shaped, pink flowers with dainty, white tears. The compelling flowers and attractive, fernlike foliage appear in late spring, drawing attention away from spent bulb foliage in the landscape.Dicentra spectabilis
