A Burning Heart that can handle to sun! I always look forward to these being some of my first blooms of the season.

(Bleeding Heart-Fern-leaved) Burning Hearts was good, Fire Island is great! Why? If you are looking for a Dicentra that has excellent disease resistance, loads of flowers, and blooms early, Fire Island is your plant. Standing 12- 15 inches tall, Fire Island is loaded with clusters of magenta red blossoms in early spring through mid-summer. Blooming earlier than other Fern leaf Dicentra, Fire Island is sterile, therefore its energy goes into lots and lots of flowers that set atop the silvery green feathery foliage. Planted in full sun to part shade, Fire Island is unlike other Bleeding Hearts that you may have grown, it prefers more sun and less moisture. Perfect for borders or in containers, Fire Island is a deer resistant plant.
