Comment
Wester bleeding-heart (Scientific name: Dicentra formosa ssp. Oregana) is a variant of North American native fellow Hannah Kemansou (Flower of Euphorbia), a member of Kemansou and Comersa. The plant height is about 50 cm, and it is the height between those two kinds. Root leaf is split two times in three biloba leaves into split pieces. From spring to early summer, it brings flower stems from between the leaves, hanging florets in flower arrangement extending from the tip. The genus 'dicentra' is a compound word of the Greek 'dis' (two) and 'centron' (distance) and comes from two flower shapes.
