Dicentra eximia, Fringed Bleeding Heart
Sold in a strip of 4 deep plugs for $35.00
These deep plugs are typically the preferred size for plants that are shallow-rooted. The additional width of these plugs allows for horizontal growth of the roots, which benefits many species of ferns and sedges.
Each individual plug measures 2 ¼” x 2 ¼” across by 4” deep.
These plugs are landscape-ready, but also offer a head start should you be interested in potting them up.
Fringed bleeding heart, also known as wild bleeding heart, is native to the eastern United States. It is found naturally throughout forest floors and shaded, rocky out-crops of the Appalachian Mountains. They grow best in moist, humus rich soil in full to partially shaded locations. Fringed bleeding hearts are self-seeding, but are not considered to be aggressive or invasive. This native bleeding heart attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds and is rabbit resistant.
