     Wild Bleeding-heart blooms forever -- not really.  But it is one of the longest blooming of the native wildflowers featuring little pink bell-like flowers hanging above the blue-green foliage from spring through fall.


     Wild Bleeding-heart adds color to the landscape and pairs beautifully with ferns and sedges.  Native bees, butterflies and hummingbirds love to feed on the flowers.


     Wild Bleeding-heart makes an outstanding groundcover under shady trees or in dappled areas of the yard.
