I saw this growing in Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh last month, but haven't been to find out what it is yet. Any botanists out there?

It's easy! This is a very common flower in any latvian garden.. we call it a broken heart.. but a scientific name for it is Dicentra spectabilis[line][line]The above picture is from the Wikipedia site:

Many thanks for the information, Irena, I guess it's not so common in gardens on the east coast of Scotland.

I think it may be an interpretation/translation issue... in English we refer to it as a "bleeding heart".

Doesn´t matter as long as we have the latin binominal name. In swedish it´s called "Christ´s blood drop". I can imagine there are many, many different names in the living languages

Here´s another contribution

Great informative thread! In English it is called a bleeding hart.. that's right.. I gave a translation of the latvian name - Lauztā Sirds (Broken Heart)..
