Cultivar Notes - 'King of Hearts'
astonishing vigor; sun and heat tolerance; bright rose-red, heart-shaped flowers that appear from late spring into fall; and lacy, soft gray-green foliage. D. 'King of Hearts' will not go dormant in midsummer as long as the soil is kept moist.
Genus Notes - Dicentra
No shade garden is complete without a patch of Bleeding Hearts. Their long-lasting flowers and fern-like foliage are delightful, and their easygoing diposition is a real boon to busy gardeners.

Dicentra is an old time favorite for the shade garden characterized by dangling heart-shaped flowers in spring. Dicentra grow best in filtered sunlight in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Plants have a tendency to go dormant in the heat of summer or if the soil becomes too dry. To help maintain summer foliage, keep soil evenly moist and provide more shade.
