Bleeding Heart 'Gold Heart'

Dicentra spectabilis 'Gold Heart'

1 gallon pot


Noted for its brilliant gold leaves and peach-colored stems, Dicentra spectabilis 'Gold Heart' (Bleeding Heart) is a graceful perennial that is fabulous to brighten a shady border. In late spring, it bears elegant, arching wands of heart-shaped rose-pink flowers with protruding white petals which dangle above the foliage. Blooming for 4-6 weeks in late spring to early summer, it tends to decline or even disappear in mid-summer. However, if it is kept well-watered during the spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early fall. Great for shaded borders or woodland gardens, plant it among other perennials such as hosta, astilbe, pulmonaria, or ferns to fill in the space left by its foliage when going dormant.
