Uses for Bleeding Hearts in Landscape Design:
Bleeding hearts are traditional favorites in shade gardens. Their foliage tends to die back after the plants are done flowering, leaving behind vacant spots in the planting bed. To retard die back, give bleeding heart liberal doses of water after flowering. It's also a good idea to surround bleeding hearts with hosta plants and other shade-loving perennial flowers that will fill in those vacant spots during the summer. Bleeding hearts are striking enough to warrant their use as specimen plants in spring.
Outstanding Characteristic of Bleeding Hearts:
The outstanding characteristic of bleeding hearts is no doubt the shape of the flowers. As the plants' common name suggests, bleeding hearts bear heart-shaped flowers, from which a little "drop of blood" dangles at the bottom. They are truly among the most whimsical plants you can grow in the landscape.
