Dicentra General Information:

Dicentra are classics in the perennial border. Pleasing groundcover in moist, shady areas. D. eximia can tolerate more sun than traditional Bleeding Hearts, but consistent moisture will ensure a long bloom period.

Dicentra Plant Care:

Requires high-organic, well-drained soil. After all flowers fade on flowerscapes, cut flower stems down to basal foliage-this can prolong bloom into fall. Can cut back for the winter after a killing frost.
