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.

This order was replacement on some plants I ordered last year that died. The rep I talked with was very helpful and sent replacements. These plants look really good and seem to be doing well. Very pleased with customer service.
