Bleeding heart is a quite distinctive small tree from Australasia with heart-shaped leaves that flutter in the breeze revealing their lighter colored undersides.  When the leaves reach the end of their individual lifespans, they turn red, creating a constant touch of autumn color in the canopy. The tree grows quickly and can produce an attractive screen for a roofline or fenceline because the crown tends to be broad, but the tree tends not to exceed 10 ft in height, so it does not reach unmanageable proportions. The bark is smooth and gray. It grows well in full sun or part shade, appreciates good drainage and has moderate water needs. (Pot size: 1 gallon)
