False Bleeding Heart could easily be mistaken for a fern were it not for the lemon-yellow blossoms that top the plant from spring to summer. The finely cut bronze-tinted foliage remains evergreen year round.

This is one of the few shade plants that tolerates poor, rocky soil, making it a useful addition for shady rock gardens and wall crevices. Will self sow when happy.
