Similarly this Bleeding Heart is not a new plant to gardeners. They have been around for the longest time in commercial nurseries.
I love the common name very much although it is such a terrible name to give to such a beautiful plant. I relish to see the red petals surrounded by the white bracts but if you are in a romance, you may want to steer clear of them and not want to get this plant unless you look forward to a bleeding heart.
