Leaves of Love: Bleeding Hearts

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here is a wonderful heart-shaped flower to show your love to that special someone. I love giving and receiving live plants as gifts so they don’t die and you can watch how much it grows over time. The Bleeding Heart flower is a unique romantic choice.

Bleeding Hearts

Dicentra, of Bleeding Heart, sprouts pink and white heart-shaped flowers in early spring. The flowers grow in rows along delicate green wines and seem to burst open with color.
