Too much sun?

Posted by mkmagee Z6 (My Page) on

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

RE: Too much sun?

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...
