Bleeding Heart is NOT native to Sutton Massachusetts - it's not even native to the North American continent! The Bleeding Heart plant is originally from Asia. It was brought over by colonists who enjoyed its heart shaped springtime flowers.
Known scientifically as Lamprocapnos spectabilis the bleeding heart grows fairly easily in shade and sun and fluffs out into a large bushy structure. The first flowers appear the very last week of April.
These photos were taken on April 28, 2011. Literally one week before, the plant was hardly more than a few green tendrils.
