Plant Type: Hostas

A really colorful selection of the Old-fashioned Bleeding Heart. This features the usual chains of pink and white locket flowers, but on a plant with stunning bright yellow foliage! As a shade-garden perennial this has great potential, combined with blue-leaved or variegated foliage plants. Protection from direct hot sun is recommended. Will go completely dormant by late summer.
