Ive been given a 'bleeding heart plant from a friend' a month ago in full bloom 2 weeks after the flowers died back, but now it's got new ones on, i did'nt think it would flower again this year. Nothing iv'e read says it flowers twice. is this normal



I've found that I sometimes get an extra flower after I've cut the spent blooms off. One year I go one spray of flowers in September.

so not common but yes occasionally

Mine throws up the odd spray of flowers after the first flush too..They do prefer a shady position too,which seems to prolong the flowering,and also stop the foliage yellowing early,since I moved it to a north facing border,in front of a Camellia,a couple of years ago..
