Common Name: Bleeding Heart
Botanical Name: Dicentra
Type: Perennial
Soil Preference: It likes rich, loose soil that is evenly moist but also well-drained.  Plants will not grow well in heavy clay soils.
Light Requirements: Partial Sun to Full Shade
Attributes: Good for naturalizing.  Some of the most beloved of all plants.
Pests: none known
Diseases: Leaf Spot.  Heavy wet soils may cause root rot.
Good Companion Plants: Astilbe, Coral Bells, Foamflower, Forget-Me-Not, Hosta, Lamium, Lungwort, Woodland Phlox, Spiderwort
Care: We recommend division every 3 years.  Dicentra should be planted in locations that are protected from high winds and early frosts, such as the edges of woodlands or on the north or east sides of buildings. It may be propagated by division in either spring or fall, taking great care to keep the fleshy roots intact when transplanting. If spent flowers are not removed, small pods develop and drop their seeds when mature and dry. If these seeds are left undisturbed, they will germinate the following spring. The resulting plantlets are easy to transplant while they are still small. At planting time, add lots of compost, humus, or peat moss to the soil to enhance its water retention capabilities.

Planting Instructions:  Perennials
