1st impressions can be deceiving - my 2 arrived looking like large dried wishbone, soaked overnight, planted in potting soil - nothing for almost 5 weeks, then - WOW - it has been two months since planted - they have shot up one over two feet tall the other just a few inches shorter and nicely bushy - both have even flowered a little though this is later than I would think they ever would in TX - AMAZING & GORGEOUS

I ordered 2 bare roots, and they arrived in TX looking like giant dried out wishbones. Soaked overnight, put in potting soil & container. 1 took a month to peek out from soil, and the other another 2 weeks after (was giving up hope, but kept soil moist). Both took off, now flowering and haven't even gotten them into the garden - what amazing 'bounce back' these gorgeous plants from Michigan Bulb! Too bad I cannot attach a photo

So far so good. As I plated it in the fall and what I did receive didn't look like much I was looking forward to see what happens in the spring. I am pleased to say that it is sprouting from the ground so nicely and healthy :). So far it is a small plant but no doubt it will look gorgeous once its grow a bit bigger :)

Planted this a month ago. I only bought one as I was not sure how they will do here in Arizona. I have in my shade garden and we have had wonderful weather past few months. This grew quickly, within one month its about 5 inches tall, no flowers yet, but it looks really good. Very happy with them and will update when it blooms.

I Love mine i bought it from Michigan Bulb. It grows like a monster very,very big every year.When you plant a new 1 make sure you use horse manure,compost,egg shells and lime then replace enough dirt to plant the root. then replace the rest of the dirt and step on it and pack it in.

I had a bleeding heart plant years ago. I bought one for my mom and one for me after my Daddy passed away. My Mother has not passed away, but her bleeding heart is still there. I have moved so many times that I lost mine. I have been looking for another one, and until I hooked up with Michigan Bulb Co. I have finally found my bleeding heart.
