The Q&A Archives: bleeding heart plant.

Question: My bleeding heart plant is turning from white to purplish-pink and not bleeding any more. Please tell me what I can do about it. I'd like to learn whatever I can to keep this plant in good shape year after year.

Answer: Sylvia,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

Bleeding heart struggles in the heat of a southern summer. Your best bet is to provide it a location with a break from the hot afternoon sun. Don't overwater it but maintain moist soil. When the weather cools a bit you may find the color comes back better.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
