Bleeding Heart is a beautiful lacy-leaved plant with pretty drooping pink, red or white flowers that blooms in the spring.

It’s deer resistant, very easy to grow and does very well in the shade.

The plant totally disappears when it starts getting hot so don’t be alarmed when that happens…it will come back again next spring!
