Pacific bleeding heart Dicentra formosa Formosa means "beautiful form". Dicentra means "2 spurred" because my petals are a bit spurred at the end. There is 2 types of bleeding heart. An ornamental one versus the native one. The one in the picture is the native one. This plant produces pretty cool little pods that look like peas. There are small black seeds in those pods. The leaves look kind of like parsley. It also looks like Herb-Robert (Geranium robertianum). This plant is apparently poisonous, but some people use the roots for medicine.

White Pacific Bleeding Heart (Dicentra Formosa) These are a definite contender for my favorite type of flower. The delicate shapes strung along on the gentle vines are something I could build an entire garden with. #flowers #flower #macrophotography #macro #bleedingheart #formosa #dicentra #dicentraformosa #nature #naturephotography #beautiful #pretty #plants #plantlife #plantlife🌱 #gardening #garden #plantphotography #photography #amateurphotography #nikond5200 #sigmamacro #sigma105mm

I have been out with both my dslr and shooting with my iPhone lately, but I haven’t been posting very often lately. One thing I’ve been busy with so much going om, and I haven’t been too inspired by the daily prompts I’m following either. But here’s some lovely flowers to enjoy while I do the rest of the preparations and packing before my husband and I leave for California next week (any tip for San Francisco and Monterey/Big Sure? Please tell 😊). #flowersofinstagram #westernbleedingheart #småhjerter #dicentraformosa #instaflowers #flowersandmacro #igscflowers #tv_flowers #pocket_flowers #picturetokeep_flowers #rsa_macro #macro_vision #macro_brilliance #macro_perfection #ig_myshot #jj_indetail #nothingisordinary #at_diff #shotwithlove #heart_imprint #natura_love_ #natures_marvels #show_us_nature #versatile_photo_ #global_ladies #fotocatchersmember #marvelshots

Pacific bleeding heart (Dicentra formosa) is a “myrmecochore”, or species that largely depends on ants for seed dispersal. To achieve this, seeds are equipped with a fleshy, lipid-rich appendage known as an “elaiosome”, which the ants use for food. Ants collect the seeds, and en route to the nest some seeds are dropped after the appendage has been chewed off. Other seeds are brought to the ants’ nest and are buried or thrown away. Through this process seeds are transported far from the parent plant, therefore reducing the risk of competition and facilitating the colonization of new habitats. ——————————— #bleedingheart #dicentra #dicentraformosa #elaiosome #seeds #pnwwildflower #wildflower #ants #myrmecology #botany #plants #bcplants #microscope #deltabc #vancouverlandfill at Vancouver Landfill

This spring has been full of heartbreaking challenges and tragedies. The Bleeding Heart is blooming like never before, and I wonder at the balance we can have with nature. I have been tending to a few native stands the last couple of years and now that we really need it, it is there in heaps. #bleedingheart #dicentraformosa #plantmedicine #foragewithcare

Die Herzblume (Lamprocapnos/Dicentra formosa) wächst im Halbschatten bis Sonne zu einem dichten Bodendecker von 30 cm Höhe mit schönem graublau gefiedertem Laub heran. Es blüht ziemlich lange bis in den Juli hinein und bei genügend Bodenfeuchte zieht das Laub erst im Herbst ein. #diegartenschule #gartengestaltung #gartenplanung #gartentipps #solingen #pflanzplanung #garten #dicentra #dicentraformosa #herzblume #pflanzedestages #stauden #garden #plantsofinstagram #plantoftheday #gardening #gardenlove #gartenliebe #pflanzdesign #tuin #perennials #jardin
