A Flower for Every Season

The outstanding characteristic of bleeding hearts is in my opinion, the shape of the flowers. As the plants' common name suggests, bleeding hearts bear heart-shaped flowers, from which a little "drop of blood" dangles at the bottom. On the type with pink flowers,  the sides of the drop are streaked with pink during this early period; after the bloom fully opens, the drops are just white. They are truly among the most whimsical plants in our garden.
