Coral bells can be watered once a week to once every other week. When watering, soak the soil rather than a light sprinkle so that the moisture reaches the root system. Only water when the soil feels dry to the touch; overwatering can lead to root rot and cause the plant to decline. When soil is moist, you can feel a light spongeyness to the soil.
Coral bells (Heuchera sanguinea) require full or partial sun in order to grow and thrive. When grown in full sun, they typically require 4 to 6 hours daily. When grown in partial sun, they should receive morning sun and be shaded in the afternoon. Direct sunlight, especially during hot summer days, can be too much for this species and can cause burning of the foliage, so it's important to be aware of the amount of sun a coral bell receives on a daily basis.
Coral bells should be pruned twice per year, in early Spring and Fall. For general pruning, the final pruning should take place in early Spring before new growth begins. In early Spring, prune away any dead, diseased, or damaged stems from the center of the plant. Avoid cutting away too much foliage, as this will decrease flowering. In the Fall, prune away any stems that have become overgrown. This will also encourage new basal growth, which can be beneficial to the health of the plant. When pruning coral bells, always use clean, sharp pruning tools. Never cut more than 1-third of any stem in 1 season. Pruning too much will cause the plant to become weakened or stop flowering completely. When pruning, also make sure to always keep a natural shape to the plant.
