The pink one is a small dicentra(bleeding heart).a side on photo would be more conclusive.the leaves look similar to a Welsh poppy,which I nearly mistake it for in my garden.I like it.does well in dappled shade to deter cats

I had to take out a recently purchased nepeta from my garden as the local cats were going mental for it.

Could I replant the catmint next to stinking iris to deter the vermin?
