My sister gave me my first and only bleeding heart as an anniversary present three years ago.
Bleeding heart (Dicentra) is a woodland plant with late-spring blooms. Its flowers are pendant-shaped, like a string of little hearts. The blooms are long-lasting.
Since I planted it, the plant has doubled in size. It is happy within its perfect micro environment of shade, seclusion and well-drained soil.
Rating: Excellent in Zone 5, requiring very little attention.
