Bleeding Heart

I took this photo in my backyard. This plant is growing in a bed of is absolutely thriving and I didn't even plant it...(maybe that's why it's thriving...). I've read a little bit about these plants...some people think they are a nuisance in their yard. As you can see from the photo....they do have a perfectly shaped heart in their blossom, perfectly crafted by Mother Nature. But about the "bleeding" part...did that really have to be part of the name? That doesn't really have a pleasant connotation to me. This flower deserves a "happier" "Heart of Hearts" or "Heartstrings"....
