How do you get a bleeding heart plant to bloom?
Then, how long does it take a bleeding heart to bloom?
Bleeding heart, however, dies back to the ground by midsummer, right after its blooming season. The plant remains dormant through the rest of the year and grows again in late winter or early spring. The plant takes two to five years to reach its mature height.
Also, what can you plant around a bleeding heart? Classic companions include hostas and ferns. Their foliage is usually picking up speed just as the bleeding heart finishes blooming and begins to decline. (If the afternoon sun reaching your garden is strong and hot, the ferns may burn.)
Also to know is, what does a bleeding heart plant look like?
Bleeding heart has attractive mounded foliage with arching stems of delicate, heart-shaped flowers in spring. It thrives in moist woodland gardens along with ferns and other shade-lovers. Bleeding heart grows best in cool, moist conditions. Flower colors include yellow, pink, red, and white.
Should I cut back my bleeding heart plant?
Cutting back bleeding heart plants should only be done after the foliage naturally fades, which should happen in early to mid-summer as temperatures begin to rise. Cut all of the foliage down to a few inches above the ground at this point.
