Product Overview

Long-lived, 8-10 in. tall x 12 in. wide, clumping perennial with coarse, lacy, soft gray-green leaves, but best known for it's profusion of distinctive, large rose red, heart-shaped flowers that appear in late spring and repeat bloom until fall, if deadheaded. Plant does not go dormant in mid-summer, as long as soil is kept moist. Evenly moist, well drained, richly organic, loose soil is best; heavy clay soil is not ideal and will need to be amended at planting time with lots of compost, humus, or peat moss to promote water retention. Plant in part sun to shade in a protected location away from high winds and early frosts; north or east sides of building or on edge of woodlands are ideal. No need to cut back; stems are self-cleaning. Flowers will not develop without winter cold. Plants rarely need division; moving them may break brittle roots. Pair with coral bells, foam flower, monkshead, turtlehead, dropwort, astilbe, and hosta.

After transplanting my King of Hearts bleeding plant, the fern turned all black in about 3-4 days. What did I do wrong?
Asked by: Joe
Hello, Joe, overwatering will cause this plant to turn black and die. Good draining soil is essential for the survival of the plant.

when to transplant

In Connecticut
Asked by: babs
Hello. The Dianthus can be planted up until the ground freezes for winter. Do not fertilize, but be sure the plant is well mulched and is provided with adequate water. Plants that are not yet established in the ground may heave when the ground freezes. Heaving will raise the plant out of the ground and expose its roots, which can kill the plant if not rectified.

I want to buy this plant

I want to buy this plant for my shade garden. I was wondering if this plant will do well in very little sun to no sun?
Asked by: Chuckles
Thank you for your question. Yes, the King of Hearts Bleeding Heart plant will grow in little to no sun. It actually prefers a woodland setting with evenly moist, well drained soil.

1 gal. King Of Hearts Fern Leaf Bleeding Plant is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It was the wrong variety of fern leaf bleeding heart.... It was the wrong variety of fern leaf bleeding heart. Instead of a " king of hearts" fern leaf, which grows best in part shade it was a " fire island" fern leaf, which needs more sun than the spot I have to put it in. Needless to say, its not doing very well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bleeding Heart I can't believe that I spent so much money for this plant. I thought it would be exactly the way it was depicted on the website, sadly it was not. The pot it came in was way bigger than the plant (which was a little more than a seedling).
