Prepare to fall in love with Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts. These unique perennials bloom in late spring and continue to flower through early summer. Their sweet pink heart-shaped flowers curl up at the tips to reveal ethereal white droplets. Masses of these blooms dangle from dainty branches, which emerge from a throng of lobed foliage. These bushy plants grow 20 to 25 inches tall and are deer resistant, making them excellent for planting around the edges of your yard.

Bleeding hearts (Dicentra) are hardy in zones 4 through 9. Unlike most summer flowering plants, they thrive in full to partial shade and can be used to fill in dark corners of your garden. Plant your Dicentra spectabilis roots in the spring, about 10 to 12 inches apart with the top of the root even with the level of the soil. Bury your perennial bleeding hearts in well-drained clay, loamy or sandy soil and watch them multiply year after year.

Use these romantic Dutch flowers to add some rosy detailing to the nooks and crannies of your garden. Consider planting them along tall fences or down the shadier sides of houses and sheds. They will also look wonderful underneath solitary trees and shrubs, or scattered throughout larger areas such as orchards and groves. Create the garden that your heart desires with old-fashioned bleeding hearts.
