Plants form a bushy, upright mound of light green foliage, with a somewhat ferny appearance. Dangling bright-pink locket flowers are held on arching stems, and these are excellent for cutting. Performs best in a rich, moist soil with partial shade, or at least protection from hot afternoon sun. After flowering, the plants should be sheared back to 6 inches tall, to rejuvenate the foliage. Even still, these often go completely dormant by midsummer, to return again the following spring. Hosta make excellent plants to fill in the resulting void. As an interesting sidenote, botanists have decided to change the name of the plant to Lamprocapnos spectabilis. Parts of this plant are toxic if ingested.
