Burning Hearts Bleeding Heart
'Burning Hearts' 20,797
Simply the longest-blooming Dicentra we have ever seen, this lovely Bleeding Heart offers striking two-toned flowers all summer long! Perfect for garden or container, this shade-lover is a splendid addition to any garden.
The flowers have a lovely locket shape and two bright colors: rich rosy red surrounded by a clean white edge. They appear above deeply divided glaucous blue-gray foliage with a ferny look on compact, nicely mounded plants in shade to partial sun. Be sure to give 'Burning Hearts' plenty of water and enriched soil. Keeping the plant well hydrated is the key to its long bloomtime. When stressed for water, it will begin its dormancy period.
Great vigor is another merit of Burning Hearts. It sets more flowers over a much longer period than older varieties, yet retains its very compact, mounded form. Just 10 to 12 inches tall and 15 to 18 inches wide, it is a fine choice for the border or container.
Burning Hearts is a glorious addition to the shade. Find a place of honor for this exceptional perennial! Zones 4-7.

Set plants 12 to 24 inches apart, depending on species. Choose a shady or partly shaded location, where the soil is rich, humusy and well-drained. D. x ‘Luxuriant’ can be grown in full sun also.
Plants should be watered during periods of drought. We recommend a summer mulch to help conserve moisture, as well as a protec tive mulch in winter. D. spectabilis tends to go dormant in midsummer, so plant a companion plant (i.e. Anemone vitifolia) and avoid accidentally digging up the plants. It is unlikely that division will become necessary, but if it does, divide in spring.
A Tradition of DistinctionSince its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC. The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.
Unparalleled SelectionWayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market.

Tips for gardening in particularly hot, dry climates:
1. Water with a drip system whenever possible – soak the bed slowly and thoroughly to a depth of 10" to 12".
2. Watering deeply every 3 to 5 days is preferable to a shallow daily watering.
3. Water in the early morning, so foliage has time to dry.
4. Add a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch or similar material to aid in water retention and help keep the roots cool during hot weather.
