If you want to minimize work in the garden, you can try to plant perennials that do not like to be disturbed and so never have to be divided. One such plant is Dicentra with the common name of bleeding heart.
Most bleeding hearts prefer part shade, especially during hot summers. They should be planted in the spring to give them the best start in life, which is what every plant, and also every person, deserves. Most bleeding-heart flowers are rosy pink with the flowers arranged along slender stems. They are usually long blooming with arching sprays of flowers and lacy blue-green leaves.
Modern varieties include a deep red with chains of puffy heart-shaped blooms that hang down from plum-colored stems. White inner petals contrast with the vibrant red petals and earn their name of ‘Valentine’.
Another spectacular new bleeding heart is called ‘Gold Heart’ because of the foliage, which is a radiant gold and shows off the dangling pink and white blooms to perfection.
Bleeding hearts are all long-lived, romantic looking plants that are especially lovely in woodland gardens or under trees that cast light shade. They require little attention yet provide cut flowers, a long bloom period each spring, and satisfaction for a gardener.
