I am so ready to see bleeding heart blooming! Beautiful Judy!
So beautiful so colourful, I never seen this flowers!!
It is a perennial called Bleeding Heart and it grows well in mostly shade. It comes in white, pink, and red.
That really made me smile. So pretty and so fragile looking. Happy Spring!
It looks like a lovely arched entrance to a fairy cave. Amazing all the detail in one little blossom!
Judy my hubby wants to know when yours typically bloom and for what duration?? Sun or shade ?
They are about six inches tall right now so it will be a little while. I’ll email you when they start. I have them in mostly shade. They can take some sun but not hot afternoon sun. I have pink and white and really want a red one. They can also be divided easily so you can spread them around. They are just the most magical plant to me that they can produce a bloom that is so gorgeous.The foliage stays green until the severe heat of the summer comes and they start to turn yellow so I usually just trim them back to the ground and wait for the next spring.
We saw one in bloom on Saturday in Lewes DE, and he was surprised it was so early. I showed him your pictures and it sparked a nice memory of his childhood and “mom’s” flowers. Nice to know they would work in the shade. I have to consider them for my shady front yard.
Charming photo Judy.
I have trouble growing Bleeding Heart at altitude – it was my mother’s favorite.
I have to apologize for the bleep of error last week. I have Foxtail FERNS…not flowers at my new house. I didn’t want you to think I have dangerous plants at my home. LOL! Your photo is amazing of this darling plant.
I have both white and pink bleeding hearts, they should be blooming in just a few days.
We are so far behind this year, my Bleeding Hearts are just green buds barely out of the ground. Soon I hope, soon!
In all honesty, that photo is from last year. My Bleeding Hearts are about 8″ out of the ground – growing but certainly not blooming yet. So, I think we are both in the same boat. 🙂
I love bleeding hearts! Mine are not yet fully blooming.
Gorgeous! I know they grow well in the shade, but do these flowers like a hotter climate or a more mild mediterranean climate?
Well, here in New England they grow and bloom in the 50’s-70’s. They are tough but so delicate and beautiful.
