Dicentra spectabilis Goldheart

£7.50

A bright twist on a classic perennial!  Radiant yellow foliage absolutely glows in spring, creating a brilliant focal point in the shade garden. Arching sprays of everyone’s favorite classic bleeding heart flower, pink and white heart-shaped blooms, dangle from the stems in late spring.  The foliage typically mellows a bit in color as the season progresses. This cultivar grows a bit smaller than the typical D. spectabilis, reaching heights of up to 2ft at maturity. After putting on this fantastic display, Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts usually go dormant until the following spring. However, if plants are kept well-watered during the spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early Autumn.

Product Description

The old-fashioned Bleeding Heart has been a garden favorite for years. It’s a substantial plant that bears long, arching racemes of pink flowers. ‘Gold Heart’ is a classic beauty with one marvelous variation: It has metallic gold leaves and peach-colored stems instead of the usual green. Bloom starts here in early May and lasts several weeks, subsiding with the arrival of summer heat. Plants often go dormant in midsummer (interplant with Ferns and Hostas to fill the breach). Long-lived, reliable, and will self sow.
