Like Bleeding Heart (Dicentra 'Candy Hearts') and Bleeding Heart (Dicentra 'Ivory Hearts') , this is a hybrid of Komakusa (Dicentra peregrina) , the Japanese and Siberian alpine species, and Fringed Bleeding Heart (Dicentra eximia) , the Appalachian species, bred by Akira Shiozaki.

This and 'Candy Hearts' have a similar flower shape, very much like D. peregrina. Each of the three hybrids has a different flower color: pink for 'Candy Hearts', white for 'Ivory Hearts', and deep pink, almost red, for 'Burning Hearts'.

'Burning Hearts' Bleeding Hearts is a hybrid selection that is a compact, long blooming, award-winning perennial for shade and good, well-drained soil.

Fern-like, blue-gray foliage is topped with sweetly fragrant, deep rose-red heart-shaped flowers that keep coming spring through fall with adequate moisture. The foliage and flower color is much more intense and its habit is more compact than wild Bleeding Heart.
