Treasured by all who behold them, Bleeding Hearts are ideal for the front of a border or a more relaxed setting like a cottage garden or wildflower planting. These easily cultivated perennials appreciate ample shade during hot summers and flourish in well-drained humus-rich soil that’s not too wet.
Dicentra formosa ‘Bacchanal’ (P-2035)
Selected from our Pacific coast species, ‘Bacchanal’ sprouts an elegant filigree-like mound of deeply cut gray-green foliage. The sumptuous, velvety wine-red flowers are draped like romantic heart-shaped lockets, festooning lithe, arching stems. Reliable, energetic and long blooming, this urbane compact cultivar delights bees, begs moist niches and looks best when massed in shady borders or along wooded paths.
Size: 12" high x 12" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
