I'm excited about this particular Bleeding Heart! It's so beautiful and I love it! The combination of the leaves and the flowers is stunning! It's truly worth searching for, if even getting it through mail order! When it's in bloom with the beautiful colored leaves every year, I just can't quit looking at it! A winner of a Bleeding Heart!
