That's interesting. Are the leaves affected? Or just the flowers?

Can you post some photos? (We operate better with pictures)

Also, can you tell us where in the world these plants are located?

Has anything changed? They used to be shaded by a big tree...or...?

Did it get extra hot this spring? That might make them fade if they're in too much sun.

Did they start off red this year, or were they red last year and white this year, or did those three maybe not flower previously? There is a white form of bleeding heart, so just verifying when these were last seen to be red.
