This oldie but goodie is still one of the finest deer-resistant perennials for the woodland garden. Emerging in very early spring, the upright stalks, clothed with dusty green leaves, are topped with dangling pink heart-shaped flowers as they emerge from the ground and don't stop until early summer. The stems top out at 2', then gracefully arch outwards. In midsummer, Dicentra spectabilis goes summer dormant, and disappears to make room for late emerging perennials in the border. Each clump will eventually have a spread of 3'.

You just can't help but love this classic cottage garden plant. All your grandmothers had it in their gardens and you should too. I do! D. spectabilis is the classic bleeding heart with rose-pink outer petals over white inner ones that form pendulous hearts that hang from the elegantly arching stems. Blooms for ages in the spring garden. May go dormant in summer if soils are dry.

This great plant has a looser habit and less dissected foliage than the other bleeding hearts. In spring, the heart-shaped, 1" pink flowers with white inner petals are lined on one side of a nodding panicle. This one tolerates sun in cooler climates and will die back after blooming.
