Heuchera Palace Purple (Coral Bells) ground cover are semi-evergreen except in very harsh Winters when their leaves and foliage die back to ground level (fresh new ones will appear in Spring). They prefer dappled or semi-shaded locations but will withstand more direct sunlight than the paler/lighter varieties. One thing they do require is moist but well-drained soil until established, when they will tolerate drier soil. They will not thrive in soil that becomes waterlogged so add grit and well-rotted garden compost to clay soils before planting.  To maintain them simply cut back any tatty or brown foliage from the previous year in early Spring and divide any clumps that become congested in early Spring or late Autumn.
