|These shade-loving perennials are popular because of their fine-textured fernlike foliage and heart-shaped flowers. Bleeding Hearts require rich, moist, well-drained soil and are excellent companion plants with begonias, columbines, epimediums, ferns, fuchsias, hellebores, primroses and other woodland plants. In mild climate regions of the country they become short-lived perennials.
Spectacular stalks of pendulous white flowers rise above fernlike foliage. Goes dormant in summer and is not as vigorous-growing as the pink-flowering species.
