Bacchanal Bleeding Heart

Bacchanal Bleeding Heart

Adds stunning blood-red colour to shaded areas.

This dicentra truly lives up to its macabre name! Its heart-shaped, 1" blooms, which grow together in clusters, resemble droplets of blood hanging from this perennial's slender stems. These crimson flowers are set off nicely by the plant's light green, fernlike foliage and last for months. Use Bacchanal in a rock garden, at the edge of a grove or in any other shady spot in your landscape. Also excellent in a container. Dicentra formosa

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
