This plant is also known as bleeding heart because of its unusual heart shaped flowers. It has fern like leaves and likes part shade to full shade situations. Can grow in cool climates. Keep Dicentra moist but plant in well drained soil to avoid water logging. Fertilise with blood and bone or general purpose fertiliser at planting and then apply a topdressing in early spring.
