Western Bleeding Heart (Dicentra formosa) is a flowering plant in the genus Dicentra, generally found in moist wooded areas from California to British Columbia. Heights of 26 inches can be reached.

Medicinal Use

Herbologists have claimed that there are uses for Dicentra formosa in relieving sharp pains that are difficult to bear, such as toothaches. However it is recommended to be used in a drop dosage, if used at all, because if used improperly it can be harmful and possibly fatal.
