Dicentra ‘Burning Hearts’

Fern-leaf Bleedingheart

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.187.260

The various selections of Fern-leaf Bleedingheart are valued for their compact habit and long season of bloom. This recent introduction forms a vigorous mound of powdery blue-grey leaves, topped by clusters of heart-shaped flowers in a glowing rose-red shade. Probably the darkest flowered form yet to be available. Excellent for edging, and very useful for mixed containers and tubs. Removing faded flowers regularly will promote lots of new buds to form. In cool summer regions plants may tolerate direct sun. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
