Delicate, heart-shaped shade flowers add romance.
If you are looking for a beautiful, colorful flower for the shade garden, bleeding hearts (Dicentra) is a great choice. With blooms in eye-catching red, pink, white, purple or a combination of these colors, the Bleeding Hearts will bring a splash of color to your garden. Bleeding hearts are the only naturally-occurring flower to have a heart shape. A member of the poppy family, the Bleeding Heart plant is easy to care for, is deer resistant, and requires little to no pruning. If the weather stays cool, these shade perennials will stay in bloom longer, as long as the soil is kept damp.
Bleeding heart plants come in a variety of sizes, but the most common size is roughly three feet tall, with a three foot spread. The beautiful green foliage provide a striking backdrop to the colorful heart-shaped flowers. Your bleeding hearts plants will thrive in areas that receive full sunlight to partial shade. Bleeding hearts require well drained and hummus-rich soil. Dicentra will grow at a moderate to fast rate and with the dramatic colors, provide the perfect balance to your border or walkway plantings, and showcase you as a gardening superstar.
