It's A Girl !!

Meet the new addition to the garden family. How do I know it's a girl? Look at that frilly little foliage. Those "pretty in pink" flowers. Tell me that's not a girl.




Many years ago I had a couple of the old fashioned Bleeding Hearts. The kind that get tall and lanky and although those are nice I wasn't crazy about them once the flowers faded away. I couldn't resist this one. Forms a mounding clump 10 - 12 in. tall, 15 in. wide. Cherry pink flowers spring through summer. Thrives in either full sun or shade. What's not to like??

(The tag might say "King" of Hearts, but what do they know!!)

That was fast. Didn't take long to get it in the ground. Looks good, should have bought one too. Just like you and jacobs ladder. Middle sis.

I told Betty to buy you one too, but I guess she was too cheap. She didn't even buy herself one.
