Previously called Dicentra spectabilis, and now called Lamprocapnos spectabilis, bleeding heart is a common, shade-loving perennial that blooms in mid tolate spring with nodding, puffy, heart-shaped pink flowers with protruding white petals.

Due to its shade-loving nature, bleeding heart is best used in in a shaded border or bed or naturalized in a woodland garden; although Dicentra spectabilis is not a native species to the US, it is well regarded for its striking pink hues and ornamental uses, and even though it is capable of self-seeding, it does not easily become invasive. Bleeding heart grows to 24-36" tall and 18-24" wide with a mounded growth habit and gracefully arching flower spikes; bleeding heart prefers moist, well drained, fertile soil, and is an excellent springtime ornamental before its foliage goes dormant during the summer months.
