How to Care for Heuchera Dolce Wildberry Plants
Before you purchase your Heuchera Coral Bells 'Wildberry' 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 'Wildberry' Receive?
Generally, Coral Bells Wildberry perennials do best in shaded areas of a landscape or garden. However, brightly colored varieties, like Wildberry, thrive with the morning sun to ensure their best color development. However, if you plant your perennial in full sun, its color can wash out, and the heat and light will cause their leaves to scorch. Optimal sunlight for your brightly colored Heuchera would be a few hours of morning sunlight and partially to fully shaded hours of the afternoon. Some evening sunlight will be okay since the sun's rays will not be as intense as they are in the afternoon.
When Should I Prune My Heuchera Coral Bells Dolce Winterberry?
We recommend pruning your perennial once you notice its blossoms are beginning to die off. Your plant will blossom new flowers, but you can help the process along by pruning off the entire flower stalk off. Doing so will allow for your plant to focus its energy on growing new flower stalks and blossoming new flowers, rather than focusing energy on holding on to dead or dying stalks and flowers. Also, if you notice any dead or dying foliage or branches, feel free to prune them off. Doing so will also allow your plant's energy to grow healthy and strong foliage and branches instead of holding on to old and dying elements on the plant.
How Often Should I Water my Coral Bells Wildberry Plants?
Heuchera Wildberry perennials like to have evenly moist and well-draining soil conditions. However, consistently wet soil conditions will cause root rot disease and could kill your plants if not taken care of quickly. When it comes to the regularity of watering your Coral Bells plant, water them on an average basis but not too frequently. If you are unsure if you should water your plant or not, we recommend holding off for another day or two to avoid overwatering.
What is the Best Soil for my Heuchera Coral Wildberry?
Your Coral Bells Wildberry perennial thrives best in well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. It is crucial to keep your plant's soil evenly moist but not too wet. Extremely wet soil conditions for your Heuchera will cause root rot disease, and if it is not caught early, it can kill your plants. When watering your Heuchera's soil, if you are unsure if it is time to water, wait a few more days to ensure your plant's soil does not get too wet. Your plant can survive with dry soil for a little bit of time without any damage.
