Bleeding hearts

Bleeding hearts ~Lamprocapnos spectabilis (formerly Dicentra spectabilis)

are an ornamental perennial flower, that bloom every springtime.

They are woodland plants that prefer shade, and well-drained soil.

This is the pink fringe bleeding heart. The blooms last longer than the bigger deeper pink variety.

This is a white bleeding heart variety.

Bleeding hearts are easy to grow, but plant some summer plants like hosta beside it, to fill in the gaps when they finish flowering in spring to fill out the garden.
