How big is it right now? Do you have it in full shade? Have you been getting a lot of rain lately????

Is this the first year you've had it, or have you had it a while????

Cinnamon, my bleeding hearts started off small the first year and they just keep getting bigger and bigger each year. [thumb] Do you have it planted in a place that gets good drainage? One year when we got drenched with more rain than the soil could handle the leaves on mine turned yellow too. [Frown]

It was very large last year so we split it up and moved it. It get a lot of sun and it has good drainage. It does have a fair amount of flowers, I'd say it's about 18" tall.

Most types of bleeding hearts prefer mostly shade/full shade....maybe it's getting to much direct sunlight???

It might still get bigger, mine just kept growing and growing....And since you split it maybe it's just going to take another year or so until it gets to the size your used to. [dunno]
