Too much sun?

mkmagee(Z6)July 9, 2012

I have a nice bed with some Astilbe and Heuchera. We had to take down the tree that was providing most of the shade. Some of the plants are looking a little withered. But it is kinda dry here right now. Can Heuchera take a long stretch of afternoon sun if I provide regular water? Or should I move to a shadier area? (I have the same question about the Astilbe if anyone knows that one)

I am rapidly running out of shady spots and love these plants

Astilbe less likely to appreciate full sun unless it is downright boggy. Many of my Huechera are in full sun but it is cloudy here, a lot. It is the shock though when the tree comes down, most plants would burn...
