Bleeding Hearts, or dicentra, are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. These deer-resistant perennials often bloom in the spring and summer and provide charm in the garden, containers and in cut-flower displays. They're easy to grow and low maintenance, too! Their size makes them suitable for growing along shaded paths and walkways. They are also a wonderful complement to other shade perennials, including hostas and ferns. Bleeding Hearts grow best when they receive shade or partial shade (less than four hours of direct sunlight daily) and the soil is kept moist, but not waterlogged. They're available in different flower colors. Many attract hummingbirds and pollinators.
