Dicentra 'Burning Hearts'

Showy mix of red flowers over lacey blue foliage make this new cultivar a sure winner.
Item: DicBuHe

Closed for 2012.


A show-stopping new Bleeding Heart that bears deep red flowers over lovely, highly-disected blue foliage. Amazing contrast between blooms and leaves. Small variety only reaching 10" at maturity. Great for the front of the border center-piece.


Transplant in well-drained soil taking care to match existing soil line with the new soil line. Dicentras thrive in well-drained moist soils with plenty of humus. Overly wet soil and standing water can lead to crown-rot. Bleeding hearts are quite drought-resistant once established, but will go dormant in summer if not provided enough moisture. They will bloom continually (March through September) if spent flowers are removed.


Plant Size:
You are purchasing a fresh field division or fresh bare-root plant of Dicentra 'Burning Hearts'. Our field plants are dug right out of our gardens the same morning that we ship to ensure the freshest possible plant. Usually leaves are removed and roots trimmed to reduce moisture loss and better prepare the plant for shipping. We recommend that you unpack your shipment immediately upon arrival and soak the Dicentra 'Burning Hearts' crown for one hour. Plant in the evening or early morning and protect from temperature extremes.

We typically ship on Mondays (during the spring it sometimes takes a couple of days or more to get out all of our orders). Please notify us if your weather is approaching freezing or if it will be above 85 degrees. We do not recommend shipping or planting Dicentra 'Burning Hearts' in these conditions.

We guarentee that your Dicentra 'Burning Hearts' will arrive healthy and thrive in your garden. Please contact us immediately if your Dicentra 'Burning Hearts' arrives damaged in shipping or if your plant fails to thrive within 90 days. We will gladly issue a full refund or send a replacement.
