Bleeding Heart Plant this is a photo of a wild plant in the everglades.This plant was very popular during the mid 19th century under the name "beauty bush". It lost favor only when its unusual culture conditions were forgotten. Specifically, its root system must be partially submerged in water most of the time, and it wants very good light. very rare to see in the wild like this one.
