Bleeding Hearts are excellent utilized as cut flowers. Arranged with peonies, pansies or roses, they soften the overall lines of your bouquets with graceful flowers. Very pretty as you can see in the tiny crystal vase above. I arranged this bouquet for my dear highschool friend. We are going to their home for dinner this evening. I remember how much she enjoys flowers. It will be a joy to visit with her and her husband, catching up on each others lives.
My mother told me that every time she sees these beautiful flowers, she is reminded of all of the bouquets she would pick and take to my grandma. We miss grandma this year but, we are sure the flowers in Heaven are even prettier than these. If you are looking for something new for your garden, you might want to try planting Bleeding Hearts. They do prefer shade, and can tolerate cool weather.
