Lamprocapnos spectabilis
I took this macro photo of one of the few surviving blooms on my red bleeding heart plant. It's not alone because the others wilted. It's alone because Keiki picked all the rest of them about a week ago, arranging them carefully on our picnic blanket. "For you, Mummy!" he crowed, and I didn't have the heart (bwa) to scold him.

How large are your plants? Mine have been in for five years and they never seem to get any bigger. I've read that they can grow up to three feet high!

25 years old, that's impressive. :)

Mine are in full sun, though they get shaded by the aquilegias (columbine) when they're in bloom. Maybe that's why they're staying small, so they can guarantee the cover from their neighbours.

That’s perfect in its beauty.

And with none of its usual companions around to steal the spotlight!

For some reason I can't get those to "take" here. I love them though.

Is the soil very wet in your garden? I'd guess it was from your descriptions of the place. I think they don't like being soaked for very long.

Only in the winter, which is the major problem. We only have loads of water when everything is dormant.
