‘Bleeding Hearts’ also known as ‘Lady in the Bath’ is an old garden favourite. Arching racemes have several small pink heart-shaped flowers with protruding white outer petals. The foliage is a soft green with fleshy stems. 

To add to its many list of names it is now called Lamprocapnos spectabilis.
