Q.Bleeding heart

Zone New England | Leighwarner001@gmail.com added on May 4, 2015 | Answered

I love bleeding hearts but never had one. A friend gave me a clipping and said I can root it in water. So I plunked it in a glass of water – lol. There must be more to it than this right? What am I supposed to do so I can replant it? Any help would be appreciated!


PS. I am trying to do the same with a snapdragon.

This article (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/how-to-root-cuttings-from-various-shrubs-bushes-and-trees.htm) will tell you how to root your bleeding heart - refer to section "how to root softwood cuttings". You will get a sturdier root by rooting in a medium besides water. Water is not considered the best means for rooting because an adequate amount of oxygen can't reach developing roots. However, it can be done.
