More details

Bleeding Heart has been one of our best selling vines for many years. It produces tons of flowers and can be trimmed to just about any desirable size. Flowers can be seen year round when warm, but if you trim at the right time, you will see heavy blooms in the fall and spring.
This vine also has beautiful foliage. It grows well in shade or sun. Grow it in the shade for nicer foliage or grow it in the sun for maximum flowers. A good trim is recommended, flowers sprout on new growth. Cut back by mid August for flowers in the fall and cut back in Jan to see a ton of flowers in the spring. You should provide a structure for it to climb on or keep it trimmed as a shrub. This is a tropical vine. Do not confuse it with Dicentras known as bleeding heart up north. It is a completely different plant.
