General description

A really colourful selection of the Old-fashioned Bleedingheart, discovered in England. 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 Hostas, Solomon’s Seal and ferns of every description.

Plant requirements

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Prefers moist, humusy soils in part shade. Intolerant of wet soils in winter and dry soils in summer. Protection from direct hot sun is recommended. Will go completely dormant by late summer.
