If this is what I think it is (Dicentra peregrina), then it likes a rich, slightly acidic (pH 5.5-7.0), woodland-like soil that is well-drained, and partial shade. Unlike other Dicentras, this one doesn't mind if the soil dries out between waterings -- in fact, it may prefer it once it becomes established. Protect spring foliage from late frosts. Enjoy!
