How to Care for Heuchera Dolce Cherry Truffles
Before you purchase your Heuchera Dolce 'Cherry Truffles' perennial, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come!
How Much Sunlight Should My Heuchera Dolce Cherry Truffles Receive?
Overall, Coral Bells perennials grow best in shaded areas of a garden or landscape. However, varieties with lots of colors, like Cherry Truffles, like to have some morning sun exposure to ensure their most vibrant colors develop. If you plant your Heuchera Dolce Cherry Truffles in full sun, its color will become washed out, and the heat will scorch the leaves. Optimal sunlight for your perennial would be a few hours of morning sunlight and partially to fully shaded time in the afternoon. Some evening sun exposure is oaky since the sun's rays will not be as intense as midday.
When Should I Prune My Heuchera Dolce Cherry Truffles?
Once you notice blossoms beginning to die off, this is the best time to prune your perennial. Heucheras will produce new flowers throughout their growing season, but you can help expedite the process by pruning off the entire flower stalk. Doing so will allow your plants to focus their energies on growing new flowers and stalks rather than dead or dying parts. Also, if you notice any dead or dying foliage or branches, feel free to prune them. Doing so will allow your plant to, once again, focus its energy on producing healthy growth instead of trying to fix what is already dead.
How Often Should I Water my Heuchera Dolce Cherry Truffles Plants?
Dolce Cherry Truffles Heuchera plants thrive best in evenly moist and well-draining soil conditions. However, consistently wet soil (soil that is too wet) will cause root rot disease. Root rot disease will kill your plants if not taken care of quickly. When it comes to how often you water your plants, water them on an average basis but not too frequently. If you are unsure if it is time to water your plant, we recommend waiting a day or two to avoid the risk of overwatering.
What is the Best Soil for my Heuchera Dolce Cherry Truffles Plants?
Heuchera Dolce Cherry Truffles perennials thrive in well-draining soil conditions that are rich in organic matter. It is crucial to keep your plant's soil evenly moist but not overly wet.

If you are unsure if your plant needs water, wait a few days to ensure your plant's soil does not get oversaturated. Your plant will survive with dry soil every so often without and risk of damage.
