The old-fashioned Bleeding Heart has been a garden favorite for years. It bears long arching racemes of heart-shaped pink flowers. Bloom starts here in early May and lasts several weeks, subsiding with the arrival of summer heat. Plants often go dormant in mid-summer. Interplant with Ferns and Hostas to fill the breach. If moisture is reliable, they will grow in full sun here in Litchfield. Long-lived and reliable year after year.

To account for the differences between the climates of the Southeast and West, we have split the "warm" end of our hardiness ratings. In the example Hardiness Zone: 4-7 S / 4-9 W, the first number of each range (4) indicates cold hardiness. The second numbers (7 and 9) indicate the limits of a plant's range in the Southeast (S) and West (W).
