Plant Features

The award-winning Dicentra 'Luxuriant' Fern-leaf Bleeding Heart is a visual symphony of elegance and endurance. As an everblooming marvel, this compact perennial showcases a tapestry of finely-divided blue-green foliage, offering a lush backdrop for the cascading heart-shaped cerise-pink blossoms. These delicate flowers, reminiscent of cherry-red hearts with a unique drop resembling a bead of blood, gracefully dance above the foliage from late spring to early fall. Notably sun and heat resilient, it stands apart from most bleeding heart varieties. Its unique grayish-green fern-like foliage persists throughout the growing season, adding to its visual allure and groundcover potential. Unlike other varieties, which goes dormant by mid-summer, Luxuriant retains its vibrant presence. To ensure a continuous bloom, merely remove fading flowers, and with adequate moisture, it promises a season-long spectacle. Whether edging pathways, gracing containers, or enchanting garden beds, Luxuriant is an undeniable jewel in any garden setting.
