There’s a reason Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts have been around for more than 150 years

 

The corgis and I ran across the most beautiful display of Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts this evening (Dicentra spectabilis). This gorgeous, spring-blooming perennial loves a rich, well-drained soil in partial shade with some protection from the hot afternoon sun. The pink flowers are especially pretty this time of year blooming near Azaleas, Redbuds, and Dogwoods. It’s nature at its color-coordinated best!

Speaking of color, they also come in white (Dicentra spectabalis ‘Alba), and there’s a very showy gold-leafed variety, Dicentra spectabalis ‘Gold Heart.’
