How to Care for Dicentra Amore Rose
Before you purchase your Fern Leaf Bleeding Hearts 'Amore Rose' plant, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come.
How Much Sun Does My Fern Leaf Bleeding Hearts Plant Need?
This perennial can grow in various lighting conditions, but it thrives in partially shaded areas of a garden or landscape. Bleeding Hearts plants are full shade tolerant; however, too much shade will make them produce fewer flowers than they typically would. Dicentra Amore Rose can also be grown in full sunlight conditions as long as their soil stays consistently moist. If your garden has a shaded area like a border that could use some vibrant new plants, try adding your Fern Leaf Bleeding Hearts 'Amore Rose' perennials.
What Kind of Soil Do Dicentra Amore Rose Plants Prefer?
Dicentra Amore Rose perennials prefer fertile, humus-rich, moist, and well-draining soil conditions. If your plant is grown in full sunlight conditions, make sure their soil stays consistently moist to avoid any burns on their leaves. Plant your perennial in well-draining soil to ensure their roots do not get too saturated. If your plant's roots are overly saturated, they could risk root rot disease and cause damage to not only the entire root system but the plant in its entirety.
How Often Should I Water my Fern Leaf Bleeding Hearts 'Amore Rose' Plant?
Fern Leaf Bleeding Hearts perennials prefer to have consistently moist soil conditions, so we recommend that you water them frequently. However, be sure you do not overwater your plants because this could damage their root system and cause root rot disease. If your plants are in a full sunlight area of your garden or landscape, be sure to check on their soil moisture levels frequently. These plants can survive in full sun; however, their soil must stay consistently moist if they are in these locations.
When Should I Mulch My Fern Leaf Bleeding Hearts Plant?
We recommend that you mulch your perennials each spring. You can apply a thin layer of compost on top of their soil to give them a boost of nutrients before adding a layer of mulch. You only need about a 2-inch thick layer of mulch to help your plants retain moisture and control any weeds from growing.
