Plant of the Week: Bleeding Heart
The romantic common name of this early summer beauty hasn’t changed, although its Latin name has: now called Lamprocapnos spectabilis, you may be more familiar with its previous name, Dicentra spectabilis.
The plant is just as lovely by any name, though, its delicate, arching stems appearing as if from nowhere in late May, dripping with exquisite pink (sometimes white) heart-shaped flowers, each dangling from gossamer-thin stalks. The dainty, ferny foliage is just as delightful, and dies down naturally after flowering: plant other pretty woodlanders like hostas or ferns alongside to fill the space. Dicentra is easy to grow in sun or part shade, and prefers well-drained but moist soil.
Cut back Clematis montana
Prune big, vigorous Clematis montana immediately after flowering to keep it within bounds, otherwise this gorgeous but vigorous climber can easily romp away and outgrow its site. Cut back excess growth to a pair of strong, healthy buds, then leave it well alone for the rest of the year to build up its spectacular display of flowers again for next spring.
