Bleeding Heart Plants
Q.

Bleeding heart?

Zone Simpsonville, SC 29680 | Anonymous added on July 8, 2018 | Answered

I bought two about half-gallon-size plants at Lowe\'s that said \"Bleeding heart\" on the side. I transplanted them when I got home into larger pots. They are \"climbers\" and I gave them cedar stakes to climb on (when I saw them putting out the shoots). Today, July 8, they are at least 7 feet tall and have lots of shoots. I doesn\'t look like any of the bleeding hearts on the internet. I have been fertilizing them every week and watering them regularly. They look healthy, but I am running out of stakes. Any idea about what I have? I live in zone 7. I had them outside in the shade but I had to put them in the gazebo because they were top heavy and kept falling over. Ken West
