Grape Expectations Coral Bells Plant Care
You can grow your Grape Expectations Coral Bells perennial in full shade if you don’t mind a slow growth rate. Alternatively, you can plant it in an area where it can get full sun and some partial afternoon shade. You can choose between well-drained soil that is either neutral or acidic. When watering, water your perennial thoroughly and allow the soil time to dry a bit before watering it again. However, be sure not to let the soil dry out completely. You may also use a slow-release fertilizer once a year.
To keep your perennial in good shape, you can prune lifeless or old leaves during the wintertime before new leaves begin growing. You can also get rid of spent stems during the season as this will aid with reblooming. Avoid pruning near the small leaves emerging from the center as they can become easily damaged.
