Dicentra 'Burning Hearts' (Bleeding Heart)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

Totally different than the old fashioned bleeding hearts. For one thing it is very short and compact, allowing the heart flowers to peek out above the foliage. The foliage, almost blue and fern-like is another big difference. The best difference is it blooms all summer and into the fall. The romantic heart-shaped flowers are still the same only in a very dark red. WOW!

Combine with Anemone sylvestris, Ajuga 'Black Scallop' or any of the early spring bulbs.

Dicentra 'King of Hearts' (Bleeding Heart)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

I've had this one before but I really didn't appreciate it like I should. When I saw it in Sweden in late August, planted as a specimen, alone, it was totally awesome. The flowers extend beyond the foliage and bloom all season right into the fall. This very vigorous cultivar has unstoppable blooms first appearing bright red, then becoming paler as they mature.

Combine with daffodils, ferns hosta, Phlox 'Candy Stripes' or Saxifragas.
