Being a herbaceous Perennial, Heuchera dies back to the ground in cold winters, though in warmer zones, can remain semi-fully evergreen year-round! Add a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch around the base of your plant. Remove any dead leaves each late winter or early spring to prevent fungal issues. Other than that, Heuchera are low-maintenance! Every few years, divide your clumps while dormant in the fall to maintain the clump's vigor.

Coral Bells do best when pruned in the early spring. Leaving the foliage intact as an extra blanket for winter protection over the crown. In some climates, Coral Bells can be semi-evergreen, so leaving those colorful leaves up all winter adds winter interest!
Coral Bells need partial sun/shade or full shade in warmer climates. They do best in the morning sun to dry the leaves of dew and afternoon shade to provide relief from the hot summer sun.
Coral Bells can spread into tidy mounds about 2-3 feet in width but do not spread by rhizomes or stolons further than where they're planted.
Coral Bells love a shaded site in enriched soil that is well-drained. They appreciate regular moisture and a mulched root zone.
Coral Bells are loved by pollinators and hummingbirds! All walks of beneficial pollinators will show up to sip their nectar.
These shade-loving perennials pair with lacy Astilbe and Ferns, other coarse foliage plants like Hosta, and the lobed foliage of Columbines! Try pairing with Barrenworts and Bergenia too!
