The old-fashioned Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spectabilis) has been a garden favorite for years. It bears long, arching racemes of heart-shaped pink flowers. Bloom time starts here in early May and lasts several weeks, subsiding with the arrival of summer heat. Plants often go dormant in mid-summer. Interplant with Ferns and Hostas to fill the breach. If moisture is reliable, they will grow in full sun here in Litchfield. Long-lived and reliable year after year.

The old-fashioned Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spectabilis) has been a garden favorite for years. It bears long, arching racemes of heart-shaped pink flowers. Bloom time starts here in early May and lasts several weeks, subsiding with the arrival of summer heat. Plants often go dormant in mid-summer. Interplant with Ferns and Hostas to fill the breach. If moisture is reliable, they will grow in full sun here in Litchfield. Long-lived and reliable year after year.

About 15 species make up this genus of perennials native to Asia and North America. The common name derives from the unusual heart shape of the flowers and protruding inner petals that suggest a single drop of blood at the base of each bloom. Most Dicentras prefer evenly moist soil, and little or no direct sun. Some varieties, including a selection of Fern-leaf or Western types, offer a greater tolerance of sun and heat, their foliage and blossoms persisting for an extended period where moisture is steady.
