‘Sulphur Hearts’ Bleeding Heart


‘Sulphur Hearts’ Bleeding Heart

Dicentra 12" tall. Graceful racemes arch over clumps of attractive cut foliage. Distinctive heart-shaped flowers dangle in a row on each raceme like charms on a bracelet.

Lovely sulphur-yellow hearts dangle above soft blue-grey lacy foliage from late spring to early fall. Flower color can be described as a cool matte pastel lemon-yellow with a subtle lavender-purple tip. Mass this beauty together with some blue-green hostas and you’ll have the perfect stop-and-stare garden along your woodland path.

Plant 12" apart in full to dappled shade in moist well-drained fertile soil. We can only get our hands on 50 of these beauties, so order early and hope for the best! Z3. (bare-root crowns)

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be potted up soon, wet the roots. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If you cannot pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors.

Pot up the rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6" pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers.
Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
