Bleeding Heart

  • Garden plant having deep-pink drooping heart-shaped flowers

    Bleeding heart’s size ranges from around 1 to 3 feet high with a similar spread. The plant has a moderate growth rate, reaching its maximum size in around 60 days. Be mindful about where you plant it, as bleeding heart is toxic to people and pets. Not to consume.

    Only to take a look to your garden these are perfect.

  • Light: Bleeding heart does best in partial shade but also can handle full shade. Direct sun can cause the plant to go dormant early, cutting its blooming period short.

    Soil: Bleeding heart prefers humus-rich, moist, well-draining soil with lots of organic matter. Prior to planting, it's ideal to work a few inches of compost into the soil, especially if you don't have organically rich soil.

    Water: Bleeding heart likes a lightly moist soil. It doesn't tolerate soggy or dry soils very well. Water throughout the growing season when the top inch of soil has dried out, even during summer dormancy to keep the roots hydrated. But make sure the soil doesn't stay waterlogged, which can lead to root rot.
