Dicentra spectabilis

Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart

A garden favorite for years, it's fairly tall at 3', and has evenly spaced pink hearts suspended gracefully on its long stems. It prefers no direct sun—a delight for shade gardeners—and blooms happily in April and May. Remember that it goes dormant in mid-summer. Try under planting with ferns, Mertensia, or ground covering shade lovers such as Tiarella 'Running Tapestry' or Creeping Phlox.
