#ProPlantTips For Care

Coral Bells are content in partial sun or full shade, tolerating full sun in the cooler USDA growing zones of 4 through 9 and should be only grown in full sun in the coolest of those climates. Otherwise, you chance leaf burn. Warmer climates will find Heuchera do best in the afternoon, or part shade or full shade.

Plant in almost any kind of soil, it’s best is moderately moist, organically rich and humusy sites with especially well-drained soil. Heuchera is susceptible to rot, so good drainage is essential while roots establish themselves.

Provide access to moisture on a regular basis throughout hot summers and long dry spells. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. Plus a winter application of compost and more mulch for best results.

An easy-care perennial, Coral Bells should be cut back in late fall in preparation for winter. Tolerating heat and humidity, it performs well even in the South where it can display evergreen tendencies.
