Behind the Bleeding Hearts

Bleeding Hearts are the true flowers of love. Some interesting facts behind this beautiful flower is that it has beneficial medicinal uses and other healing powers. Bleeding Heart or “Valentine flower” which can grow more than thirty inches and flowers in pink, red and white, were used by Native Americans as a compress or tincture for the relief of pain. The aesthetics alone can help one to feel good and those who are truly in love find a special connection and affinity to this wonderful plant.

When searching for the perfect wildflower garden, one should always include plants from the bleeding-heart family. As a perennial which come up by themselves, they are fond of shade or partially shaded settings. The flowers are delicate and can be carefully made into a stunning bouquet that will grace any place they are used for display. No spring would be complete without the Bleeding Heart.

Introduced in 1847 by Robert Fortune, Bleeding Hearts were a favorite of the Royal Horticultural Society. The classic heart shape serves as a reminder of the power of love.
