Friday Flowers: Bleeding Hearts

Bleeding Hearts were Mom's Dad's favorites so of course when she saw this one single broken down plant at a Garden Club sale, she had to bring it home, never thinking it would survive.

Now it is a bush and what she didn't know is you can't kill this thing. Really, you can't, even the City tried. They did some work on utilities and while they were repaving the street they thought it would be a good idea to pave over the corner of Mom's perennial garden. You know what grew through the asphalt the next year, the Bleeding Heart. It was the only plant that survived and continues to thrive. The rest lie dormant under the asphalt.


  1. WE love Bleeding Hearts... Butt did not know they would grow through asphalt. THAT is a Real desire to keep on ticking.

  2. We also love Bleeding Hearts! They grow in the wild here and you are right, they seem to take over everything!!!

    Yours sincerely,
