Bleeding Heart

Can you believe the beauty of this thing right before it blooms??? Double click on the pic to enlarge and see the reddish-purple edges. Breathtaking!

Pros: drought tolerant once established, hummers love it, blooms last a long time (at least in my area), can be trained as a little bushy thing or up a trellis. No pests to be accounted for. Transplants easily (mine was in a spot where it was not doing well at all, now it is in a place where it gets about one extra hour of sun and it is doing great). It is just plain lovely.

Cons: cannot find any!
