The Bleeding Heart, Dicentra formosa ‘Aurora’, is a fast-growing perennial with creamy white, flowers. Prized for their long season of bloom, these compact clump-forming plants are a mass of flowers in spring and fall with intermittent blooms during the summer. Blooming is especially heavy if spent blossoms are picked off. The blooms look wonderful against its grayish-green foliage. Dicentra ‘Aurora’ has a plant height of 14″ and a width of 20″. This is a fast-growing, dwarf perennial with arching stems of heart-shaped flowers from late spring to late summer. The blue-green, fern-like foliage forms a soft mound, and is a lovely foil to other plants. Aurora is easy to grow and it looks great planted in mass as a groundcover at the front of a shady border or as part of a cottage garden scheme. As long as the ground is kept moist, it will thrive in full sun or partial shade. Dicentra will bloom from May to September and is a major attractor to butterflies. ‘Aurora’ makes excellent cut flowers, in mass with groundcovers, or in potted containers. Being an old fashioned plant, it is a must in any landscape.
