Thank you for a great article.

We have squirrel corn back in the woods in bloom right now. I have D exima that has taken over the entire wildflower garden and is being moved piece by piece. I also have a D. spectabilis, they are a requisite for any good farm house garden. Even my grandmother who wasn't really much of a gardener had one that grew quite lush and large. I have killed more of the D. spect. alba than I care to admit to and have given it up as a bad job.

Todd, they are all beautiful and I have yet to acquire one. I got seeds for D. eximia in a trade this year and managed to get one plant going. My neighbor has a beautiful pink one in bloom now... don't know the species. I really need to get on this.

Thanks for the great pics & info. Well done. jan

Oh, Thank you! I am SO excited to have all this information on bleeding hearts in one place. I love them, and usually manage to get one growing well just in time for me to move again. Now I have a handy list with photos to carry!

Thanks for this lovely article on Bleeding Hearts. I have never been able to grow them, but I bet I never gave them rich enough soil or a shady enough spot. I am going to try again. I have always loved them and have, sadly, killed several.
