Dicentra Valentine®

Item #26699


A Pretty Perennial for Shady Spots

Don't feel sorry for this bleeding heart—this Valentine® serves its essential part of your spring blossom show. Perfectly placed red and white valentine strings dangle from dark red stems for a neat arrangement. This is a classic look for any shade border, even without the standard purple-flushed foliage.

Emerging on the scene before the leaves, each bloom stands out with a personality of its own. Looking at your Valentine® blossoms might remind you of fuchsia blooms because of the tropical bright colors and puffed out appearance. They are plentiful and long-lasting when held in a horizontal clothesline position. Simply cut a few branches to enjoy inside your home while the remaining bleeding hearts adorn your spring perennial border.

Even when the leaves begin to uncurl, this Valentine® bleeding heart will not disappoint. What seems to be lost is replaced with purple-streaked leaves in bright green that lasts for weeks.

At approximately 30 inches in height and width, warmer climates might even enjoy a display of Dicentra Valentine® around Valentine's Day. Just plant these blossoms in the foundation or even in the middle of the border.
