I've never had Bleeding Hearts or Oxalis before, so what do I do for fall clean-up? Do I cut them down to ______? Or do I pull them out? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Notaplumber,
Not sure about the oxalis, but just leave the bleeding heart where it is. They usually die back in the late hot summer anyway. If you have severe winters a protective mulch layer may prevent it from frost damage or loss.

Fred & Gami

Thanks for the info. Great website, Gami. Hopefully these plants of mine will flourish next year as well.
Have either of you heard of the perennial called Lulu? They are a lovely bushy plant with tiny yellow four leafed flowers. And they smell wonderful. I'm sure Lulu isn't the proper name. Have stolen some seeds and plan on having lots in my gardens next year.

Thanks again
V.
