Dicentra spectabilis (Bleeding heart). This is an arching bushy deciduous perennial clump. It will produce fern-like, mid green foliage. In mid spring racemes of pink, purple, white heart-shaped flowers will bloom on arching stems. The white inner petals of the flowers will extend from the outer petals giving the appearance of a bleeding heart.
It is short-lived in mild climates and the foliage will die back by midsummer. You will need to grow in humus-rich, moist but well drained soil.
Rock garden, border, wall or trellis, ground cover. Spring/Summer interest.
