The Q&A Archives: Red coral bell

Question: My red coral bells have been shaded by another plant and seem to be turning green. If I transplant them or the plant that is sahding them, will threy turn red again?

Thank you.

Answer: Coral bells can fade in the summer heat but they generally start out with a bright color and then fade. If your plants are being shaded too much, the color pigment won't develop fully. So, there has to be a happy medium between some direct sunshine but not too much hot afternoon sun. In just the right planting spot their foliage should remain a vibrant red. Try to find a place in your garden that gets morning sun and at least some protection from hot afternoon sun.

Best wishes with your garden!
