Dicentra plant is perennial, and its flower is also called the bleeding heart. These flowers have a heart shape and are native to North America and eastern Asia. Additionally, they are rhizomatous and are suitable for planting in hardiness zones 3-9.

If you are looking for flowers with an incredibly long flowering season, these are your best deal. Color your spring, summer, and fall with dicentra. They bloom throughout these seasons, but they become small and less showy in the mid-summer when the sun is too hot. However, if you plant them under a shade, partial or full, they can continue providing undisrupted elegance to your garden. Make sure they are well watered to avoid withering.

Dicentra flowers come in different species that include:

Dicentra Spectabilis

It is an indigenous form of this plant that grows approximately 2-3 ft tall. This species is native to eastern Asia and grows slightly bending. Its flowers come with hues of red, pink, and white. When you plant these in your flower borders, you can enjoy having a striking bloom for 4-6 weeks from late spring to mid-summer.

Hybrid Spectabilis

It is an improved species of indigenous dicentra. Hybrid spectabilis is native to North America and grows upright to a height of 10-15 inches. Unlike dicentra spectabilis, this species blooms for longer periods, mid-late spring to early fall. If you do not want to remain with a bare garden during full sun, look for this species of dicentra for sale and enjoy having a decorative outdoor space.

How to Care for Dicentra Plants

Caring for dicentra plants is fun and easy. It begins at the planting stage. Dicentra bulbs come in different sizes. For bountiful produce, sow them according to size. That is, smaller bulbs should be planted in pots while the larger ones are ideal for growing in the garden.

Choose an excellent planting position in your compound to give the plant the best-growing environment. Consider adding nitrous fertilizer once in a while to have fuller foliage.  Although these flowers can thrive in full sun, it is best to plant them in cooler places such as under the shade to be bountiful throughout the season.
