Clerodendrum thomsoniae 'Delectum' - Red Bleeding Heart Vine

There must be a reason for the name
Bleeding heart vine they call these flowers.
Is there a sad story somewhere? Oh what a shame
Perhaps a tale of sadness spun around lovers
or someone's heart-breaking experience?
No, flowers should not carry such labels
because they are the healers of bleeding hearts
and not the other way around.

龙吐珠, 珍珠宝莲
