Will the common, garden variety coral bells grow well in full sun? Or is part-shade a better location for success?
THank you.

I have coral bells growing in what would be considered full sun. They are on the east side of the house and get sun from sunrise (nothing to block that side) until about 1pm. They are doing great but it might be the eastern exposure, usually considered to be kinder than south or west.

I have various heucheras in morning, midday and afternoon sun. One or the other -- not all at the same time. I think most do well with a few hours -- just not all day.
I would go ahead and plant. If it burns, just move to a shadier location.
Also, I've started growing many of mine in pots and sinking the pot in the ground. It seems, so far, I'm having better results. If you did that it would be easier to move if the sun is too much for it.
