How do I transplant my bleeding, and when sould it be done?

United States Us

It has really taken over an area and it is being crowed

On plant Dicentra spectabilis



when it has finished flowering dig it up. the root system is quite brittle so it will break up. then replant where you want it and water well. or you could wait until the autumn when it is dieing down or the spring as it 'wakes' up. the later 2 times are the best option if you want to be certain of keeping it.
