Though it may look similar to ‘Burning Hearts’ at first glance, once you grow the new ‘Fire Island’ you’ll understand the difference. You’ll quickly appreciate ‘Fire Island’ for its more vigorous growth rate, bushier habit, earlier flowering, and increased flower production. This sun loving alpine type of bleeding heart has been extremely popular since its introduction into the US.

Flaming magenta red, heart-shaped flowers with white tips are produced in clusters above the very finely textured, frosty blue foliage from late spring into midsummer. Two added bonuses with this new selection: it is more disease resistant and does not produce seed, helping it to bloom longer into summer.
