For a shady spot I love my Bleeding Hearts. They only last through early summer, but the delicate flowers in early spring are definitely worth it! Submitted by Ron

I find Hostas and Dicentra bleeding heart and clematis(Jackmanii)are the best for my garden in northern Ontario Canada zone 4-5. Also love hollyhocks easy growing and beautiful to look at. Submitted by Diane
