Dicentra 'Luxuriant' (Fern-Leaf Bleeding Heart)

Fern-Leaf Bleeding Heart 'Luxuriant', Bleeding Heart 'Luxuriant', Western Bleeding Heart 'Luxuriant'


Everblooming, award-winner Dicentra 'Luxuriant' (Fern-Leaf Bleeding Heart) is a compact herbaceous perennial adorned with a blue-green, finely divided foliage and arching sprays of nodding, heart-shaped, cerise-pink flowers. Blooming over a very long season extending from late spring to early fall, the flowers dangle gracefully above the lush foliage mound. 'Luxuriant' is more sun and heat tolerant than most bleeding heart varieties. Excellent for edging, and very useful for containers.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society for its outstanding merits
  • Grows up to 12-15 in. tall (30-37 cm) and 12-18 in. wide (30-45 cm).
  • Thrives in part shade or full shade and is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils. Will tolerate a sunny site if the soil is kept consistently moist.
  • Great candidate for borders, containers or edging
  • Deer and rabbit resistant
  • Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a 2-in. (5 cm) layer of mulch to retain moisture and control weeds.
  • After the first killing frost, cut stems back to an inch or two above soil line.
  • Propagate by division in early spring or after the leaves have died down
  • All parts cause severe discomfort if eaten.
