how do i plant dicentra bare roots which are already showing signs of growth

Do not know how deep to plant. do I cover the fresh growth that is emerging from the roots.

On plant Dicentra spectabilis



where the fresh growth comes from the brown root stock that is the soil level. so plant to that depth. water well and enjoy. a cm too deep wont hurt.

welcome to GoY too.
