The Q&A Archives: Bleeding Heart Got Frozen

Question: My bleeding heart plant got hit by the frost. It was absolutely beautiful and now it is limp. I was wondering what I should do to it. Should I trim it back a little? Please let me know. Thanks a bunch!

Answer: Dicentra (bleeding heart) is a tender plant with succulent stems. Frost will rupture the stems (as you've probably already learned!). Cut the damaged stems back to ground level and the plant should send out new stems. Good luck to your Bleeding Heart!
