Valentine Bleeding Heart is the perfect name for this plant! Deep, blood red heart shaped flowers with a peek of white, hang pendulously from arching, dark red stems with gray-green foliage tinged with red highlighting the flowers! A fast growing perennial that will give you years of delight! This old fashioned plant was in your grandmother’s garden. I know it was in my grandmother’s garden!

This is a late spring bloomer in the perennial garden. It is Bambi resistant, is ideal for those shady to partly shade areas plus pollinators love it! It has a mounding growth habit and is 28-30 inches high. This is a plant you will find in cottage gardens. It does fade out once the summer heat comes in but is back in full force after winter.

Valentine Bleeding Heart Care

‘Valentine’ is hardy from Zone 3a- 9b which means you can grow it just about anywhere in the country. It likes moist but well-draining soil, part shade for best blooms and should be fertilized with a slow release fertilizer such as Espoma Flower Tone.

Valentine Bleeding Heart Spacing

Bleeding Heart is found in gardens everywhere. The tiny heart shaped flowers make it a favorite with gardeners. Plant 28-30 inches on center for a mass planting. Ideally plant it between summer annuals and perennials to have color from spring through fall.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
