'Gold Heart' bleeding heart

debbiecz3(z3MB)August 16, 2009

My gold heart dicentra did not keep it's yellow foliage over this season, it's basically green like the regular old fashioned bleeding heart. Last year as I recall it maintained the yellow foliage. Is this common for this variety? I'm disappointed as it sure brightened up a shady spot with it's vibrant foliage.

Hi Debbie,
That has not been my experience....I have mine in a totally shady spot along with a regular pink bleeding heart and they bloom for a looooong time with the foliage staying lovely til frost.
Love it.

Flora
