  • I have one and I let the leaves die off (usually by the end of the summer or mid fall) and then I cut it down to the ground. Has come back 3 years now and bigger each time. Good luck!

    there is no maitenance for bleeding heart.This perennial dies back on its own .No prunning is necessary.

    No mid season pruning required. I do cut it to 2-3 inches once the stems die to stimulate growth the following season. Fertilize once a year in spring. They tolerate shade with some sun, don't get bugs and last forever! Hope you enjoy!

    I had one up until last year when we moved & it did grow quite big without my doing much to it so I would just cut back a few branches here and there & any that were dead.

    No need to prune --mine self-seed and multiply in the yard. You can cut it back if you wish.--Very low maintenance plants.
