WHITE BLEEDING HEART (2 BARE ROOT PLANT) PERENNIAL FLOWERS
WHITE Bleeding Heart. 2-3 EYES, Dicentra spectabilis ALBA
This spectacular selection of an old classic boasts white heart-shaped flowers and handsome lime-green foliage. Tall stems emerge and produce dangling clusters of white blossoms in early spring. Repeat bloom is likely in cooler autumn weather. Spreads into large clumps when planted in loose, moist soil. An herbaceous perennial.
After putting on this fantastic display, Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts usually go dormant until the following spring. However, if plants are kept well-watered during the spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early fall. Other bushy perennials, such as Hosta, Geranium, or Sedge, should be planted nearby to fill in the resulting gaps.
Prefers fertile, humusy, neutral pH, loose, well-drained soils; avoid heavy, soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. May go dormant in hot, dry summer conditions. Apply a low-nitrogen fertilizer in early spring. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.
