Bleeding Heart

(Lamprocapnos spectabilis)

Whimsical bleeding heart is an elaborate, old-time species that stands out among shade-loving plants. Named after the heart-shaped pink flowers fringed with white petals, which dangle from its arching stems and soft-green foliage in late spring and early summer.

Grows 24 to 36 inches tall and 18 to 30 inches wide in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 9; part to full shade.
