Silvery-green fern-like foliage unfurls as the ground warms in spring, with clusters of heart-shaped pink blossoms following shortly thereafter. This member of the bleeding heart family blooms most freely in late spring, but continues lightly throughout the summer and into early autumn. It will not go dormant during the heat of summer if provided with water sufficient to keep the soil moist. An excellent woodland plant, a shade garden standout and a fine choice for the north side of a home or garage.
