More Information

Description 'Gold Heart' Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spectabilis) puts a twist on the classic look with radiant golden foliage. Arching sprays appear in late spring, decorated with pink and white heart-shaped flowers. The chartreuse foliage provides the perfect backdrop for highlighting these unique flowers! If it wasn't already colorful enough, peach stems hold the foliage and flowers to form a lovely, bushy mound. This perennial is reliable and easy to grow, so it surely won't break your heart by dying midseason. Plus, deer and rabbits tend to leave it alone. Try planting it in a rock garden, as ground cover, or underplanting shrubs, and it won't disappoint. All it needs to succeed is a well-draining soil, part sun or shade, and a home in your garden! Details Botanical name: Dicentra spectabilis 'Gold Heart'
Common name: Bleeding heart, Old fashioned bleeding heart
Zone: 4 - 8
Sun exposure: Part sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun)
Height x width: 24-30" x 24-36"
Flower color: Pink
Foliage color: Golden to chartreuse
Season of interest: Late spring through summer
Bloom time: Spring
Features: Rabbit resistant, deer resistant, cold tolerant
Uses: Accent, container planting, massing, ornamental, rock garden, edging, underplanting
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in humus-rich soil that is moist, but still well-draining.
Light: Grows best in part sun (4-6 hours sun) but can handle full shade (< 4 hours sun). Will have fewer flowers when grown in shade, so part sun is recommended.
Water: Thrives with average moisture. It prefers moist soils that do not dry out during summer, but does not tolerate wet soils in winter.
Spacing: 2-3 ft.
Fertilizing: It does not require fertilization in nutrient rich soils. However, if the soil is low in nutrients, apply a small amount of all-purpose garden fertilizer in the spring.
Winterizing: Cut foliage back in the winter and apply a thin layer of mulch to insulate the roots.
Maintenance & pruning: After the flowers fade, cut the flower stems back to keep the planting looking tidy and promote more blooms.

Bleeding hearts

It was a struggle at first but they've come back and are flourishing ✨️

Disappointed

I received the plant and it was in good shape. When I went to plant it, I was disappointed to find out that the 1 quart pot the plant was in contained a 1-1/4-inch x 1-1/4- inch plug. It had not rooted in the 1 quart pot at all. I find this to be a bit deceitful considering what I paid for it. I nearly lost the plant to drying out but it is recovering and and I need to water it every day.

Great plants!

I've been redoing my landscape since we've lost several trees. Our landscape went from almost all shade to all direct sun. I've received several perennials and shrubs from Great Garden Plants. They were all healthy when they arrived. All were planted within a day or two and they look wonderful in the garden. Next year, I'll be adding a new flowerbed in my backyard, so I'll be buying from them again. I like the size if the containers; I don't have to dig a huge hole for each. It takes some time for them to grow to maturity, but that's OK. I enjoy seeing them grow.

Gold Heart, Bleeding Heart

Not sure this plant will survive. It came to me a little damaged, even though all 4 plants I ordered were meticulously packaged, and since May, it hasn't grown much at all. It is planted in the right ph soil and gets intermittent sun throughout the day.
Not sure what else I can do for this little fella, except wait and see.

Hello! Thank you for leaving a review of your Bleeding Heart. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!
