A new outstanding selection of the Old-fashioned Bleedingheart. This beauty features arching spikes of elegant cherry-red, heart-shaped blooms with white tips held on dark burgundy stems. Blooms late spring to early summer. The delicate ferny foliage matures to an attractive powdery grey-green. Thrives in damp borders and woodland gardens but also makes a fantastic addition to a shady patio container. Protection from direct hot sun is recommended. In warm regions plants may die back and become dormant by late summer. USPP#22739: unlicensed propagation prohibited.

Prefers moist, well drained soil. Feed in the spring with an all purpose fertilizer before new growth begins. Trim after blooming to promote vigorous new foliage. Could go into dormancy with the summer heat.
