Bleeding Heart (Dicentra Spectabilis)


Bleeding heart plants were beautiful in the spring, blooming a lot. Now, all the leaves are turning yellow. They are planted in the shade. What can I do?

Hello Gardener,

First off, planting in the shade was a great idea. Bleeding Heart does well in part-shade or full shade. Also, they enjoy moist soil.

However, what you're describing concerning the yellowing leaves is normal. Bleeding Heart goes into a SUMMER dormancy. As soon as the extreme heat sets in, that's what will happen. So, all is well...that's just what they do.
