Growing & Maintenance Tips for Dicentra spectabilis 'Valentine'

May go dormant in the heat of summer, so place it with other perennials such as hostas that will fill in the bare spots. Amend soil with organic matter before planting. Water regularly during the hot summer weather, but keep drier in autumn and winter. Prefers a sheltered position. Divide in spring, only if needed.
