Unlike other fern-leaf bleeding hearts, Aurora's foliage is blue-green, not silvery, which helps to set off the white flowers to their best advantage. Developed by a German grower, this long flowering cultivar made it across the ocean quickly and has been warmly welcomed in the States. With ample moisture this bleeding heart will bloom heavily in the spring, sporadically throughout the summer and then again with gusto in the fall. Mature plants are bushy, with finely cut leaves.
