Choose a position on any moist, rich, fertile soil in dappled or semi shade. Dicentra prefers a neutral to slightly alkaline soil.
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.
