The Multnomah Falls Plant of the Day #4 Bleeding Heart

Bleeding Heart – Dicentra formosa

So, I’m starting to worry that I have referred to every single one of these plants at Multnomah Falls as my favorite. They are just all so great! And even more importantly they are all so great TOGETHER!

Bleading Heart is no exception. I particularly adore this plant with ferns. At the falls we have it with Sword ferns. I think it is also fabulous with our native maiden hair fern! With such delicate lacy leaves and a broken hearted blossom, it is certainly one of the most desperately romantic flowers in the Pacific NW.

Where to find it at the Multnomah Falls Lodge: In the outside planters in front of the lodge.
