How I deal with shade; my shade gardens.


This is the west shade garden.
West side yard; pathway and flagstone combined for hardscape accent to shade loving plants.
Stone half wall for orchids; gingers and bleeding heart vine on the arbor.
Same area as seen from the arbor.
Tri color bromeliads; base of gardenia tree; elk horn fern and mondo grasses.

    Are you sure that the white flower with the red tips are bleeding hearts? Mine look quite different and grow in a bush shape?

      Yes, it is a bleeding heart vine. There are several types of bleeding hearts. I have seen one that is a purple color.

      I too have this genus, also one in maroon and a red and white and they are all beautiful and different.

      Look up clerodendrum to see this plant. Lots of different bleeding hearts available. So pretty!

      Cynthia - you probably have Dicentra spectabilis, though there are several Dicentra species.
