Common Rose Pink Bleeding Heart


An old garden favorite with graceful, divided, fernlike foliage and heart-shaped flowers that is most often used in woodland gardens. The pendant, rose-pink flowers appear on leafless arching stems in late spring. Bleeding heart may undergo a dormancy period in late summer, however dormancy can be somewhat delayed in cool-summer climates with adequate moisture.
