Common Name: Bleeding Heart-Old-Fashioned
Zones 3 to 9;

Mature size 30 inch height, spreads 18 to 36 inches.
In late spring, chains of puffy, white, heart-shaped flowers dangle beneath the arching, leafless stems over large, bushy clumps of powdery-light green foliage. In cooler climates with adequate moisture, the bloom time may be extended into early summer.
After putting on a spring display, Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts usually go dormant until the following spring. However, if plants are kept well-watered during the spring, dormancy may be delayed until late summer or early fall.
