What's happening to my bleeding hearts?

The bleeding hearts at my old house used to flourish all summer. The ones at my new house are already starting to turn yellow and die. What's happening?

Are you growing the same kind of bleeding heart as you were at your old house? The old-fashioned type (Dicentra spectabilis) blooms in spring, then goes dormant once the weather starts to warm. It also will die down early if it gets too much sun or dries out, so don't be surprised if it's dormant by mid-summer. The fern-leaf types (D. eximia and D. formosa) bloom from spring until autumn, though they, too, usually slow down during the summer.
