Artist's Description

Dicentra spectabilis – also known as Venus’s car, bleeding heart, Dutchman’s trousers, or lyre flower – is a perennial herbaceous plant native to eastern Asia. This species of bleeding heart can grow to 24"-36" tall and has ternately compound leaves (leaflets that come in threes). The flowers are pendulous, shaped much like hearts, produced in a raceme bearing 3-15 individual flowers, each one 1-2" long, with pink outer petals and white inner petals. The flowering season is from early spring to mid summer. The common name of this plant, bleeding heart, comes from the usually red heart-shaped flowers which have a longer inner petal that extends below the ‘heart’.
