Quick Overview:

‘Burning Hearts’ is a bleeding heart cultivar that is noted for its extended bloom period (particularly in cool summer climates) of bright deep rose-red flowers lined with white. It is also distinguished by its ferny blue-gray foliage and compact shape. Primary bloom is from mid to late spring, with continued flowering that will slow down considerably or stop in the heat of the summer. When the temperatures cool in late summer to early fall, rebloom may occur.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade. Prefers consistently moist, rich, humusy soils. Soils must not be allowed to dry out during summer. Intolerant of wet soils in winter. Promptly remove spent flowering stems to promote additional bloom. This is a sterile hybrid that must be propagated vegetatively.
