I've recently noticed only one or two of these plants in different spots in my yard, both in semi-shady conditions. It seems so similar to Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spectabilis) in its grayish green leaf tint, leaf shape, and even the pink/white color of the small flowers that I plan to transplant one of the plants to accompany my D. spectabilis and Maidenhair Ferns near my fish pond. It is so few in number in my garden that I don't consider it "invasive" and I find its appearance attractive.
