Bleeding Heart Candy Hearts
Pink Heart Blooms and Blooms
Bleeding Heart 'Candy Hearts', Dicentra 'Candy Hearts' PP#14,692, is part of a new generation of bleeding hearts that are nothing like your grandma's old fashioned bleeding hearts!
This exceptional, dwarf variety blooms from mid spring until a hard frost. The pendulous flowers accent the lacy, blue-grey foliage and are shaped like cute little rose-pink hearts.
Dicentra 'Candy Hearts' remain compact and attractive all season long! The delicate fragrance is an added bonus for the senses!
With its elegant long stems and famous heart-shaped flowers, Dicentra is perfect for a border or patio container, and will thrive in a partially shaded spot. This really is a shade lover, delighting in full to part shade conditions.
This plant will perform in the full sun but will tend to disappear in mid-summer when it has all the sun it can handle. It usually pops back up the following spring.
It is best to plant it in fertile but well-drained soils. ‘Candy Hearts’ prefers consistently moist, humus-rich soils that are similar to a great woodland soil -- full of organic matter and richly fertile.
The simplest way to mimic this is to add several shovels of compost around the base of the plant every spring.
This charming, yet stunning Bleeding Hearts, will literally light up your shady areas in your garden!
