Like old friends, these plants that we bought several years ago, show up to greet us about this same time every year! It's refreshing to see them again. My two children and I bought this bleeding heart for Brenda over 30 years ago, and it has made the move from that original flower bed to three others at the three other homes where we've lived. For the last few years we've placed our geranium pots under the house or in the garage during the winter, and let them go dormant. In the spring, we cut back the old stalks and bring them outside and give them water again. Within a week, they show signs of new growth, and in six weeks, will be blooming heavily again!
