Treasured by all who behold them, Bleeding Hearts are ideal for the front of a border or a more relaxed setting such as a cottage garden or wildflower planting. These easily cultivated perennials appreciate ample shade during hot summers and flourish in well-drained humus-rich soil that’s not too wet.
Dicentra ‘Stuart Boothman’ (P-2227)
Paying tribute to the astute Berkshire-based alpine plantsman and author, this resilient AGM winner most likely arose from a Dicentra exima and Dicentra formosa cross. Copious arching sprays adorned with romantic deep rosy-pink floral hearts lounge above the snug, finely divided ensemble of slender lobed gray-green leaflets. A reliable lush-looking perennial, ‘Stuart Boothman’ can be planted amid Pulmonaria ‘Benediction’ or Hakonechloa macra in cottage gardens and mixed borders or beneath shrubs, where it blooms for months, thwarts bunnies and deer and adores consistent moist soil plus protection from hot afternoon sun.
Size: 8" – 15" high x 12" – 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
