The Q&A Archives: Bleeding Hearts

Question: When do bleeding hearts (dicentra spectabilis) bloom in northern New Jersey?

Answer: As with most perennials there is no set week that they would bloom as it depends on the weather each year as well as the microclimate where they are planted. As a rule though you would look for blooms in the spring sometime in April or May. They can bloom over a period of several weeks if the weather stays cool, shorter if it turns suddenly hot. I hope this helps.
