Deep rose-pink buds open to reveal pale pink, heart-shaped blooms which dance charmingly above the ferny, gray-green foliage. This selection is everblooming, flowering most freely in spring and continuing throughout the summer and into fall. Heat tolerant. Unlike the Common Bleeding Heart, D. eximia will not go dormant in midsummer as long as the soil is kept moist. Rather, it will enchant passersby all season long.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Though this species is heat tolerant, Dicentra is most at home in woodland settings. It likes rich, loose soil that is evenly moist but also well-drained. At planting time, add lots of compost, humus, or peat moss to the soil to enhance its water retention capabilities. Plants will not grow well in heavy clay soils. Dicentra should be planted in locations that are protected from high winds and early frosts, such as the edges of woodlands or on the north or east sides of buildings.
