Lamprocapnos spectabilis is native to Japan. It grows 2 to 3 feet tall and blooms in late spring with rose-pink, heart-shaped flowers that dangle from long leafless stems. There is an inner petal protruding from the bottom of each heart-shaped flower, which is reminiscent of a drop of blood and gives the plant the name “bleeding heart”.  It is attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, while resistant to deer and rabbits. It is hardy in Zones 3-9.
