Bleeding Hearts: Red and White Kanzashi by hanatsukuri Bleeding Hearts: Red and White Kanzashi by hanatsukuri
:heart: an in-progress piece. These will eventually be boutineres, but I don't know what kind of fixture the bride would prefer...

For :icongigglefitt25:

More photos on my LJ: hanatsukuri.livejournal.com/33…

This is a 華鬘草 (けまんそう : kemansou, bleeding heart), a flower that is traditionally used to decorate beautiful places. You can see a "Chinese knot" style of the kemansou in Buddhist temples in Japan.

If you are ever open in the future I might have to ask for a commission of these. These were the flower for my wedding with my husband. :love:

Oh yes, but I strongly prefer commissions through etsy, as I don't login to dA so much any more...

Thank you for your comment!

Lovely! If you end up with extras, you should make little hair clips. I had a bleeding hearts bush in my yard before we moved.

They bloom from late spring to early summer. I lived in Connecticut at the time when we had one, but they are native to eastern Asia from Siberia south to Japan. It's perennial so it will die back in the autumn and winter, but they usually come back in spring. So if you are still living in Japan, it should do well there since it is a native plant.

Hmmmmmm, I haven't seen it growing wild. But, I live in a city-like area...so... (yes, I'm in Japan for at least another year and a half. :D) Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

But I met a monk at a local temple who told me about it in Japanese-- maybe he knows where some are on display in a local garden. :nod: I'm not sure i could take care of one-- I have this tiny little plot of earth, and I can barely be bothered to weed it. *grins* I like art more than weeding. :XD:
