Dicentra, commonly known as bleeding heart, is a perennial plant that does go dormant in the winter. It typically enters a period of dormancy, during which it sheds its foliage and conserves energy. Bleeding hearts are hardy in USDA hardiness zones 3-9, with some variation among species and cultivars. To care for them, plant in well-drained soil with partial shade, as they prefer cool, moist conditions. Keep the soil consistently moist, and mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and protect the roots. Additionally, deadheading spent flowers can encourage prolonged blooming.
