Dicentra spectabilis 'Hordival' PP #22,739
|Description||An old-fashioned favorite with a vibrant new look, featuring superb clusters of heart-shaped deep red flowers from arching red stems.

|Patent Act||Asexual reproduction of plants protected by the Plant Patent Act is prohibited during the life of the patent.|
|Design Ideas||In climates with ample summer moisture and mild to moderate temperatures, the foliage often remains present until the fall, making this a fantastic perennial for shade and woodland garden settings. After its brilliant floral display in the spring, the plants may go through a dormant period in hot and dry summer areas; plant among other summer blooming perennials for best effect. Bleeding Heart makes a great spring flowering perennial for containers, a seasonal indoor flowering house plant, and is a delightful addition to fresh floral bouquets.|
|Companion Plants||Coral Bells (Heuchera); Astilbe (Astilbe); Soft Shield Fern (Polystichum); Hosta (Hosta); Ligularia (Ligularia)|
|Care||Prefers fertile, humusy, neutral pH, loose, well-drained soils; avoid heavy, soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. May go dormant in hot, dry summer conditions. Apply a low-nitrogen fertilizer in early spring. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.|
