Plant Features

Dicentra 'Candy Hearts' Fern-leaf Bleeding Heart offers a whimsical journey through seasons with its remarkably enduring blooms and vibrant vitality. Adorning vigorous clumps of powdery blue-green, fern-like foliage, delicate heart-shaped blossoms dangle enchantingly, casting a spell with their dusky rose-purple shade. Contrasting with the traditional bleeding heart, this novel perennial bursts forth with resilient, candy-heart pink flowers, exuding a mild fragrance and blooming relentlessly until the inaugural frost. The dark rose, heart-shaped flowers elegantly drape from arching stems, gracefully hovering above the robust foliage, presenting a breathtaking spectacle of color and form. Whether enhancing edges, brightening mixed containers, or starring in tubs, ‘Candy Hearts’ unveils a splendid display, especially when faded flowers are removed to encourage the unveiling of new buds, potentially extending its dazzling show into the autumn in cool-summer regions. A modern twist on a classic, it ensures a mesmerizing, colorful display year after year.
