Brown Edges on Foilage-Coral Bells - Knowledgebase Question

Schenectady, Ne
Question by sdoehler1226

Why are some of the leaf edges on my red coral bell plants turning brown and drying out? I followed planting instructions and planted them in partial sun/shade areas. At this time, the plants are developing brown edges around many leaves. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Suzy

Brown leaf margins can indicate heat stress, water stress, or salt burn (from over fertilization). If you've only recently planted your coral bells they may simply be trying to adapt to their new homes. Once the roots establish well, the new leaves should remain healthy looking. Just continue to give your plants good care and I'm sure you'll see a change for the better.
