Majeekahead's Garden

Bleeding Heart (pink)

Genus: Dicentra.

Species: Dicentra spectabilis.

bought cheap from wilkos april 2008 - i have planted it next to the fence under the lilac tree - around the back in a nice shady corner that needs a bit of filling - this should do nicely!

hardy perennial from china and korea and likes shade the lovely pendent flowers, which hang in dainty clusters from curved stems bloom from may til july height approx 70cm, grows well in any kind of soil.

bought a cheap mixed pack of shade lovers (pinks and whites ect) this was in with them so i now have two, this one has gone in the new front garden bed.
