(Formerly Dicentra spectabilis.)

The name is changing, but Bleeding Heart Valentine® remains a timeless beauty. Sweet, airy tendrils of heart-shaped red and white flowers on deep red stems drip from handsome purple-hued foliage, creating an unexpected show of color in the shade.

Well suited to shade borders, the eye catching blooms emerge in spring, well before the plant's leaves awaken, ensuring the dainty flowers take center stage. As the abundant blooms fade, bright green leaves tinged with magnificent purple, begin to unfurl. With the delicate, dark red flower stems adding contrast, the foliage steals the show once the flowers have departed.

Hummingbirds adore this classic beauty and are sure to show up at bloom time, adding to its spring color show. Bleeding Heart, Valentine® will quickly reach its growth of approximately 30 inches high by 30 inches wide.

Be sure to establish Valentine® where you can get up close to admire its many gifts. It works well in the front to middle of a shade border, or on its own. Zones 3-9.
