LAMPROCAPNOS

LAMPROCAPNOS    

PAPAVERACEAE

 

Bleeding Heart has pretty cut foliage and is named for its arching stems of heart-shaped flowers in spring.

Originating from Eastern Asia it was until recently classified as a Dicentra. After the first flowering the plants may be cut back to stimulate a second flush of flower. Lamprocapnos will become dormant during the summer months.

They grow best in humus-rich, moisture-retentive soils, in part-shade. Woodland conditions are ideal. They can be divided in early spring.
