A stunning addition to spring borders, cottage gardens and woodlands. Height: 120 cm (48"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Dicentra prefers a neutral to slightly alkaline soil. Choose a position on any moist, rich, fertile soil in dappled or semi shade.
Water regularly until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of chipped bark or well-rotted garden compost to the base of the plant. Dicentras have particularly fragile roots and are best left undisturbed if possible. However, overcrowded clumps may be divided in late autumn or early spring if necessary.
