Burning Hearts Bleeding Heart

Dicentra 'Burning Hearts' PP #20,797

SKU
00480
Long-blooming stems of heart-shaped, deep-red flowers appear from April to September above magnificent blue-green, fern-like foliage. This hybrid thrives in cool northern climates, where it can tolerate more sun and drier conditions than ordinary bleeding hearts. Ideal for rock gardens, shade borders, or containers.
