DescriptionBleeding Heart is also known as Venus's car, Dutchman's trousers, or lyre flower. It is a perennial native to eastern Asia from Siberia south to Japan. The common name comes from the heart-shaped flowers which have a longer inner petal that extends below the 'heart'. Flowering in late spring they form a bushy, mound of pale green fern-like foliage.
