Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Dicentra is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Dicentra prefer rich, loose soil that is evenly moist but also well-drained. Plant in locations that are protected from high winds and early frosts, such as the edges of woodlands or on the north or east sides of buildings.
