Formerly known as Dicentra spectablilis, bleeding heart is a Chinese plant bearing pink-red, heart-shaped flowers with white tips, which hang from arching flower stems in late spring to early summer. Clumps of bleeding heart remain compact for many years and do not need dividing.
Brilliant for spring displays after spring-flowering bulbs, bleeding heart is invaluable for bringing colour to cool, moist shady parts of the garden. Grow clumps between shrubs, as drifts in light woodland, or in ornamental borders.
'Pearl Drops' is an outstanding pale-flowered bleeding heart, with cream blooms tinged with pink, contrasting with silvery blue-green foliage.
