I think my Bleeding Heart plant is very cool looking. This photo was taken over a month ago, so the whole plant is about double this size (it dies back to nothing and re-grows each Spring – another bit of coolness).
Bleeding Heart (noun): 1. any of several dicentras, esp. a common garden perennial (Dicentra spectabilis) with racemes of drooping, deep-pink, heart-shaped flowers
2. a person regarded as too sentimental or too liberal in dealing with social problems
Maybe it's that I feel a kinship with this plant…? 🙂
