23 Feb Dicentra spectabilis ‘Gold Heart’

We love this perennial because it’s a sign of warmer days to come. Bleeding hearts typically bloom early spring and go dormant by the summer. Be sure to pair it with hostas and ferns to fill in the gap once it’s gone. It’s hard to resist the delicate chains of locket shaped pink & white flowers, no garden should be without this old-fashioned perennial.
