Fern-leaved Bleedingheart Growing and Maintenance Tips

Thrives in a moist, fertile, humus, rich soil that is well-drained. Dicentra need protection from the hot, afternoon sun. Pinch back spent flowers to encourage a longer bloom time. If the soil dries out, it may push the plant into premature dormancy.
