Growing & Maintenance Tips for Dicentra spectabilis 'Alba'

Amend soil with organic matter before planting. Water regularly during the hot summer weather, but keep drier in autumn and winter. They will go dormant in the heat of the summer, so place it among other perennials that will fill in the bare spot. Cut back when foliage turns yellow. Prefers a sheltered position.
