More Information

Description 'Ruby Gold' Bleeding Heart is sure to turn heads as the first Dicentra spectabilis with golden foliage AND brilliant red flowers! Arching sprays appear in late spring, decorated with ruby red and white heart-shaped flowers. The golden 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 'Ruby Gold'
Common name: Bleeding heart
Zone: 4 -  8
Sun exposure: Part sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun)
Height x width: 24" x 36"
Flower color: Red and white
Foliage color: Gold
Season of interest: Late spring through summer
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.

Just needs patience

I ordered five of these “Ruby Gold” Bleeding Hearts last summer. They were very small and faded away completely in the summer heat almost immediately, but this year, all five returned and are growing strong. They bring a lot of light and character to my shade garden. Hang in there and give it time. They are worth it!

Hi KT, thank you for sharing a photo of your Bleeding Hearts with us! We're so happy to hear that they are doing well this year. Happy Gardening!

I ordered it and was told it was out of stock

I wish I had this plant! It’s the reason I placed the whole 2nd order! 🤣

Poor quality

I planted it in a place that gets more shade like I did with my other bleeding hearts...my other bleeding hearts are thriving and getting huge while the ruby gold has died. Hopefully it will grow next year but I wasn't happy with the looks of it when it arrived at my house... It looked droopy and wilting. I would not buy again.

Hello Lisa!
Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, we appreciate it. While we try our best to make sure our plants look in tip top shape when they arrive to you, sometimes your new plants may look a little stressed after their journey to your garden. Usually a little TLC and some water will help them perk right up. It's important to note that they do go dormant from heat so it may just be going dormant. That's totally normal, and it will be back next year. Even though your other ones are growing more vigorously, it will have experienced a lot more heat growing in the greenhouse than an outdoor plant would have. If they don't perk back up, don't hesitate to reach out to us with pictures at claims@greatgardenplants.com We offer a 30 day guarantee on all of our plants and we'll happily replace or refund you for plants that do not survive!

We will see.....

Came beat-up but I trimmed very little for it was little to begin with. Doesn't want to grow either. I feel they shouldn't ship plants so tiny.

Hello Kimberly! If you ever have any issues with your new plants don't hesitate to reach out to us with pictures at claims@greatgardenplants.com. We offer a 30 day guarantee and are happy to help you!
