I planted one of these 'Taylors Dicentra Spectabilis 'Bleeding Heart'
Bulbs - Specialist Bulbs - Dobbies.com' (http://tinyurl.com/3l8he5e )
about 2 years ago now and every year i never get any flowers just the
green leaves?! Can anyone suggest the problem here? Its planted in our
border in semi-shade. Thanks Ali
Did you get this from a reputable seller? Was it blooming when you got it? I
seriously think there is no trick to this plant. It isnt in heavy nitrogen
fertilizer is it?

Somewhere between zone 5 and 6 tucked along the shore of Lake Michigan
on the council grounds of the Fox, Mascouten, Potawatomi, and Winnebago
Ours bloom profusely every year.
New Jersey USA, semi-shade.
Also new plants spring up around the yard every year or so.
They aren't blooming yet. A week or 2 more.
If you have a full bushy plant 2 feet tall, I'd expect blooms.
Have patience, it will bloom shortly. Mine starts to bloom here in
the northern Castskills once there's substantial foliage... it's just
beginning to send up shoots now, but once it gets going with warmer
weather it will grow fast. Mine will begin to bloom after the first
week in May... precisely on the 14th my resident hummers will arrive,
that morning I put out the feeder and as usual they will say hello by
tapping on my back window by about 2 PM. Yup, just checked, my
bleeding hearts are about 10" tall now... no blooms yet, will be about
three more weeks.
Mine reach about 2 feet, and send up about 10-20 stems.
At a foot, it's still too early. If that's the maximum height
it reaches after a few years, it's not happy.
Our soil is clay and the plants aren't fed.
They still grow like crazy.
how large is the plant when it
has the most leaves on it? do you
know what the leaves are supposed to
look like? do you trim the plant at
all? if so, when? what are the
soil conditions? have you used
fertilizer? what kind? how much?
how often? how much sunlight do you
mean by semi-shade? any more
information you can add?
