Fringed Bleeding Heart Picture

A beautiful long-blooming (March-October) woodland plant with pink and purple heart-shaped flowers, upright seed capsules, and fernlike blue-green leaves, which create a lovely verdant bushy effect. Particularly fond of rich, well-drained acidic woodland soils and slopes, this species can tolerate rocky soil and can even be grown in rock gardens. The flowers of Fringed Bleeding Heart are a favorite of hummingbirds and bees, and the seed capsules may be eaten by songbirds. In favorable conditions, this species spreads slowly by rhizomes to form modest colonies. Although it can bloom from early spring until first frost, this species is not especially heat-tolerant, and may stop blooming in midsummer if it's too warm; this effect can be mitigated by planting it in a cool, shadier position. This plant is poisonous to humans and may cause contact dermatitis if handled in large quantities.
