Bleeding hearts are very easy and beautiful hardy perennials for the mainly-shaded garden and do well even in dry areas under trees and around homes. Plants grow up lush foliage in early spring, quickly forming large clumps bearing many, many gorgeous heart-shaped flowers along long stems!
Flowers last for a long time, as they continue to develop along the stems, easily visible and adding welcomed color to the spring and early summer gardens. We grow various Bleeding Heart plants around our property, and they seem to be quite versatile regarding location.
Most of our soil is sandy and dry, and they even grow under the acid-producing evergreen trees! Obviously, they are also quite happy in rich, moist soil also.
