Soil: Foamy bells like to be planted in average to high nutrient soil, and good drainage is a must, especially in shaded areas.
Light: As a general rule, heucherellas do well in shade, but for the highly colored varieties, some morning sun will bring out more intense coloring. Color can wash out in full sun and too much heat and light can cause the leaves to scorch.
Water: Has average water needs, and will perform better if kept too dry than too wet after being established.
Spacing: 1.5 feet apart
Fertilizing: In spring a layer of compost or an application of all-purpose garden fertilizer can be applied around the base of the plant.
Winterizing: Winter mulching will prevent the freezing and thawing that can heave plants roots. Leave foliage standing for the duration of the fall and winter.
Maintenance & pruning: In early spring clean up old foliage before, or just as, new growth emerges. Cut back the entire flower stalk after flowering to put the plant's energy into growing more leaves.
