Compact, disease free plant with grey-green foliage and bright fuchsia blooms.
The various selections of Fern-leaf Bleedingheart are valued for their compact habit and long season of bloom. This variety forms a vigorous clump of powdery grey-green leaves, topped by clusters of delicate, dangling heart shaped flowers in a bright rose-red shade. Excellent for edging, and very useful for mixed containers and tubs. May be divided in fall or early spring. Removing faded flowers will promote lots of new buds to form.
