Hybrid Bleeding Heart
Bleeding hearts are delicate-looking plants, with graceful, divided, fernlike foliage. Dainty pendent flowers, usually heart shaped, in pink, rose, yellow, or white on leafless, horizontal to arching stems. In general, dicentras need rich, light, moist, porous soil. Never let water stand around roots. Foliage dies down even in mild-winter climates; mark clumps to avoid digging into roots in dormant season. Short-lived in mild-winter areas.Dicentra hybrids
D. eximia and D. formosa cross freely to yield hybrids, many of which have been named. The most commonly cultivated grow to 1–1 1/2 ft. high and 1 1/2–2 ft. across (eventually spreading more widely) and bloom from spring into summer.
