Name: Dicentra spectabilis ‘Gold Heart’ aka golden leaf bleeding heart
Type of Plant: A perennial for part shade that’s hardy in zones 3-9.
Why I Love/Hate this plant: The golden foliage is brilliant in the spring, and the string of hanging, heart-shaped flowers are icing on the cake. Pink blooms, small size, and early brilliant foliage color makes this the perfect plant to include in shade gardens.
A Word to the Wise: Sometimes this plant goes dormant in a dry season or hot summer.
