Oh Chico! The Bleeding Hearts are beautiful. My cousin just thinned her Bleeding Hearts and gave me 3 plants which I put in a basket shaped planter. They seem to be doing well. Now I can't wait for them to bloom. I've never had them before.

At first I thought the first picture was Clematis. Beautiful!

Here is a pix of my Clematis.

I have Clematis too. It doesn't seem to be doing anything right now.

AliSam,The Clematis needs to be cut down to about 1-2 feet early spring,but you probably already know that..yours should be showing new leafs and buds by now,depending on where you live.
