Since most of my yard is shady, this was most interesting. Shady side of gardening -- love it! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

I was happy to see bleeding heart in Texas...maybe worth a try. I love Japanese Painted fern. I am always looking for something to lighten up my shade

The bleeding heart I bought last summer turned out to be white. Surprise. Great clump, however.

Has anyone been successful growing Bleeding heart in Texas? I noticed a picture in the database by Dave, but that was a while ago.

I grew Bleeding Hearts in Tennessee, and when we moved to Texas in 2003 I brought one with me in a container and it bloomed (in its container) the first spring. Unfortunately, it didn't survive that first summer, and I never grew it again.
