Lamprocapnos spectabilis ‘Gold Heart’ is a golden-leaved form of the common bleeding heart. It has greenish gold foliage and grows 2 to 3 feet tall. It blooms in late spring with rose pink, heart-shaped flowers that dangle from long, arching, leafless stems. There is an inner petal protruding from the bottom of each heart-shaped flower  that is reminiscent of a drop of blood and gives the plant the name “bleeding heart.” The flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies while resistant to deer and rabbits. The plant is hardy in zones 3 to 9.
