Shade Loving Plants: Bleeding Hearts

Do you need a shade loving plant with spring blooms that can stay around til early fall? Sometimes, you can get what you want. One of the unique flowers around, bleeding hearts are both beautiful and a good conversation piece.

Their tiny hearts dangle like charms on a bracelet, making it a truly lovely plant. Part of what gives it that delicate charm like appearance is the fact that it has a leafless flower stalk. With the leaves comfortably settled in the background, the flowers get all their well-deserved glory. Truly one of those plants everyone needs to grow at least once. Dicentra Eximia can be found in our mail order nursery.
