Bleeding Hearts

Evelyn Johnson added on May 31, 2017 | Answered

Can I cut back my bleeding heart after it quits blooming and starts to turn brown? It always dies back during the summer, and I would like to plant other flowers to replace the color during the summer months, but it doesn't completely die back until mid-summer.

You can cut back the foliage after it turns brown or yellow. It's best to avoid cutting it back while the foliage is still partially green, because the plant needs to store energy for next year. You can remove individual brown sections, though.
