Patio Pals Cara Lime Coral Bells Care
Coral Bells grow best in part shade, though they tolerate both shade and sun depending on the climate. With average water needs and tolerance to salt, Cara Lime plants can be transplanted into moist but well-draining soil. While Coral Bells will generally grow just fine without fertilizer, they may benefit from a slow-release fertilizer for perennials or a layer of compost in the early spring to boost new growth. In warmer climates, add a layer of mulch around the base of the plants to aid in moisture retention.
This mounding perennial does not require regular pruning. In fact, unlike many other vegetative perennials, you should avoid cutting back Coral Bells until new growth has developed in the spring, only removing those leaves that have dried up. Flower spikes can be removed after they have finished blooming to give these plants a cleaner appearance. When kept in containers, move Coral Bells into a protective garage in colder climates to ensure their survival through the winter.
Patio Pals Cara Lime Coral Bells Spacing
Coral Bells can be planted as a standalone plant, in a container as a ‘filler’, or in a mass planting. Coral Bells is not particularly invasive or aggressive, but you can plant Patio Pals Cara Lime Coral Bells about 1-2 feet away from other plants to allow them plenty of room to mound and spread. For mass planting, these perennials can be planted a bit closer together.
