Bleeding heart (Dicentra spectabilis) known for its pillow-like, heart-shaped flower that dangles like a single pendulous drop.
The flowers of bleeding heart seeds are typically pink or white and are held on arching stems above the foliage.
They have a droplet-like shape at the tip, which gives the plant its common name.
The flowers are typically about 2-3 inches long and are arranged in clusters along the stems.
The plant has delicate, fern-like foliage that is typically a deep green color.
The leaves are divided into narrow, lance-shaped leaflets that grow to a length of about 6 inches.
Hardy in USDA hardiness zones 3-9, which means it can tolerate a wide range of temperatures and growing conditions.
Plant bleeding heart seeds in cool, moist conditions and the full grown plant does best in partial shade to full shade.
The plant can tolerate some sun, but it may wilt or become scorched if it is exposed to too much direct sunlight, especially in hot climates.
Prefers rich, well-draining soil that is slightly acidic.
They do not tolerate drought well, so it is important to keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged.
Adding organic matter to the soil can help improve the growing conditions of bleeding heart seeds..
Plants typically grow to a height of 2-3 feet and have a similar spread.
However, the size of the plant can vary depending on the growing conditions and the specific variety of bleeding heart being grown.
